Helping Families

Since 2016
Our History

Fight for Connar was born in 2016 to raise funds for our nephew, friend and family member, Connar Gibson, who fought a hard battle with brain cancer.

Sadly on the 7th October 2016 at just 9 years old, our Superhero grabbed his cape and flew into the clouds.

Today, we continue to Fight for Connar in his legacy to raise funds to support other families with terminally ill children.

Why join the fight?

Why contribute to Fight for Connar?
It is easy to help "Make Memories Matter" for children and families who are on a journey involving a terminal illness, bring a smile to the face of a child and create opportunities for families to have them captured for eternity.
By contributing to Fight for Connar you help to assist families with the financial stresses of funeral costs.
What are the donations used for?
All donations are put towards "Making Memories Matter". Our first allocation goes to hand molds and a photography session where families can allocate a place and invite all family and friends to share.
We continue to support families through a variety of avenues including meals, jewelry, holidays, shirts and merchandise for individual children as well as gift vouchers. Finally, we support the family by helping with money towards the child's funeral.
How do we find families?

Families are referred through the palliative & oncology units at the John Hunter Hospital.

How can I personally get involved?

Contact the Fight for Connar team to find out how you can best help.
