A MUNSTER family which has raised more than $60,000 says an annual fundraising walk is the perfect way to repay the help offered to them during their time of need and honour the memory of their little girl.
On Sunday, November 13 the Simic family will take part in the Big Walk in memory of their daughter Sindi, who died following a battle with cancer three years ago.
Sindi was diagnosed with a brain tumour just before her second birthday, and passed away at home two years later.
The Big Walk is used to fundraise for Perth Children’s Hospital Foundation (formerly PMH Foundation).
Sindi’s mum Dijana said the event, which they had taken part in for six years, allowed the family to continue supporting other families, while remembering their own little girl.
“The reason we do the Big Walk each year is simply because we miss our little one and want to give back to the community to try to help other families going through what we went through,” she said.
“We would encourage other families do the Big Walk because it is a beautiful walk, and it’s for such a good cause.
“You never know when you might need the support of the wonderful people at Princess Margaret Hospital (PMH).”
Sindi was cared for by a multidisciplinary team at PMH, including the respiratory team, speech therapy and physiotherapy, the MRI team, oncology ward, ICU and the surgical team.
