Our vision, and promise, is to provide families of children with life threatening illnesses, an escape from their reality, where they don’t count the days, but rather make the days count. Making Memo ries – that last a lifetime.
So what is it that many of these families crave? They just want time – valuable time with their loved ones to make valuable, lasting memories.
Our intention is to send one family away each month on a holiday to spend some much-needed quality time together. It is here they will be able to build a chest of memories with their most precious treasure of all – their child. These could be local or overseas holidays. The choice is undoubtedly theirs.
The families considered for these holidays will come from our Community of Mates which will then be evaluated by the MOAM board – this has and will always be an emotional and difficult decision for the MOAM board. Sadly we receive many applications via the “apply now” link on our website. We are continually talking with families to see how best we can provide a wonderful experience and making memories that they will always remember.
That’s our pledge, that MOAM is giving back to our community, to you!
Unfortunately flight travel is not an option for some, they are restricted by the medical support service they need. Acknowledging this simple fact that families may not be able to travel great distances, our vision it seemed, needed a longer term plan … a retreat. A place for these families to spend precious time together. This plan that can only be realised with the support of our Community of Mates.
