Celebrities meet & inspire kids with cancer

SHANE Warne, Michael Clarke & Lydia Schiavello recently met and inspired sick kids at Monash Hospital in Victoria as part of their work with Camp Quality and the Shane Warne Foundation.

The celebrities met children living with cancer who have been supported by Camp Quality’s in-hospital team, including Brae McCormack, 10, from Doreen and Noah Kidd, 6, from Ferntree Gully.

The two professional crickets and the cast member of the Real Housewives of Melbourne accompanied the Camp Quality puppets on the visit of the oncology ward at the hospital. The Camp Quality puppets visit kids living with cancer in hospital to provide them with a welcome distraction, make them laugh and give them a confidence-boost. Kylie, one of the female puppets, is bald from chemotherapy treatment – so kids living with cancer can easily identify with her.

Shane Warne said: “What an amazing experience to visit the Monash Hospital and to meet so many courageous and brave children. Congratulations on the amazing job that all of the staff do, and the two Camp Quality puppets were the icing on the cake, bringing smiles to everyone’s faces, including ours! I look forward to more visits and helping out where I can”.

The visit was arranged as part of a close working relationship between Camp Quality and the Shane Warne Foundation.
