Peter Blackshaw Real Estate Tuggeranong
Rhys and the team at Peter Blackshaw Real Estate Tuggeranong came on board wanting to do something to support Freyja, and they left us speechless at their dedication, drive and commitment to making this happen. Before we knew it, they scheduled an event called Freyja's Footloose Fundraiser, organised the entire event and raised well over $7000 at the Canberra Irish Club! We are proud and honoured to have such a reputable company, good people and support around us. Their company story is definitely one that we can attest to.
Rhys Summergreene organised another event #Resplendent Gala Ball May 2018 which was a celebration of health. He did all this whilst battling Cancer himself raising money for Freyja and her family. A ture community leader who was later honured with the ACT Community Award. "He is an amazing man" says Lizzie. "A true hero in my book!"

The Chesterfield Band
The Chesterfield Band started in the kitchen with Tess and Cam writing and singing together. They decided to enter a competition for local songwriters. They won, and with the money, they recorded and released their first single under the band name “My Dad & I”. Then they grew into the band they are today but still remembering Freyja. They wrote and performed a song last year for her that touched eveyones heart and it landed well on itunes. this year they are back with their hit "Home", check out the video. For anyone with a sick child at home with long drives to and from hospital this song will hold meaning. Tess and Cam still help Freyja and her sisters with learning music, singing and playing guitar, much needed music therapy and we are forever grateful to the crew at Mojo Guitar.

St Nicholas Pre School and Childcare Centre and the community have been actively involved in campaigning and holding events to raise the funds for Freyja.
About St Nicholas
At St Nicholas Pre School and Childcare Centre we believe that the early years of a child’s life are their most influential.
During these years a child develops skills and abilities that will carry them through life.
Our aim is to work closely with families to form a partnership to develop learning programs responsive to children’s ideas, interest, strengths, abilities and recognise that children learn through play.

They are very special people and the family can not thank them enough for their generosity and assistance throughout this tough time. "Lora and Fred are rare people who I am blessed to have in my life" says Lizzie "the girls just adore them and they continue to support Freyja every day".

Justine and Patrick's daughter Lara is Freyja's best friend at school. When the family of heard of Freyja's situation, they reached out. Without their help and perseverance, the MotoGP auctions and access to the superstars of racing worldwould not have been possible.

We reached out to Shannons and asked for assistance to help by hosting a worldwide online auction. They went a step further and not only hosted the entire event, but gave 100% of all auction proceeds to #acureforfreyja.
