Mummy’s Wish is an innovative charitable organisation which seeks to help ease the terrible burden of cancer diagnosis on mothers with young families.
During November we are holding a special High Tea event in association with long time supporter Kathy from High Societea and we need your help! Everyone loves a good high tea – so gather a group together and celebrate your own good health and happiness, whilst helping Mummy's Wish to make a difference to mums undergoing treatment for cancer. We need to sell 100 tickets for this event to be a success.
Founded by cancer survivors Bernadette Vella and Gayle Richardson in 2008, Mummy’s Wish provides practical support to mums undergoing treatment for cancer while the mums are supporting their young children and is immensely proud to be able to provide even the smallest amount joy in an otherwise very dark time.
High Societea holds a very special place in Bernadette's heart, as this is where she took her interstate visitors when they came up to visit her during her treatment for Hodgkins Lymphoma.
There will be a selection of dainty cakes, sandwiches, muffins, pikelets, quiche and much more served on high tea stands from High Societea's fine china collection.

Mummy’s Wish is a unique not-for-profit charity focusing on providing practical support to mothers (or primary caregivers) diagnosed with cancer whilst either pregnant or already having young children (primary school aged or under) to care for.
Mummy’s Wish was founded in 2007 by two Brisbane mums, Bernadette and Gayle. Thorough their own experiences with cancer, they understood firsthand the challenges they faced with having a young child and also having cancer. Surviving cancer treatment is difficult for anyone, but trying to survive it whilst being a wife and mother to young children is nearly impossible. Bernadette and Gayle were fortunate to have an extensive support network of family and friends available to help them every step of the way. After their own battles with cancer, they had learnt a lot on their journeys and wanted to be able to share that information with others to help them through. They made a promise that if they survived they would start a charity to help other mums in similar situations.
