That’s a Quality Giggle
RYKA Gulati did not have much to look forward to while undergoing chemotherapy two years ago. But then she encountered some puppets visiting the Royal Children’s Hospital.
“She had chemotherapy for 1 1/2 years, which was pretty tough until Camp Quality volunteers visited one day with some puppets,” her mum, Vanu Gulati, said.
“From that time on, whenever she saw the puppets she would giggle and they just made her day.”
Ryka, 5, is now recovering well and has enjoyed many of the camps with her parents, including an art and craft and Halloween camp.
“I was honestly concerned about the camps at first but it was the first chance we had to forget about everything and feel like a real family again” she said.
Homewares brand Lorraine Lea is helping raise money for Camp Quality this month with its annual Party for Kids with Cancer appeal. People host a party in aid of the fund and a Lorraine Lea stylist brings a range of linen, decor and homewares to the house for purchase.
The company has raised more than $1.3 million for kids with cancer since 2000.
