Now in its 15th year, Bailey’s Day
has made an enormous difference
to the lives of children affected by cancer.

15 incredible years – nearly $3 million dollars raised!

With the help of dedicated supporters, including some who’ve been involved since the charity began; the Bailey’s Day foundation works tirelessly throughout the year to raise funds.

Moving forward, Bailey’s Day will continue to help improve the level of care and resources at the Children’s Cancer Centre at the Monash Medical Centre. Also on the agenda is cancer research, as we continue to strive towards a cure for children’s cancer.

The Cause

‘Bailey’s Day’ is named after Bailey, the son of Kerryn and Patrick Tessier, who died of a brain tumour in 2004 at just two and a half years old.

While Bailey was being treated, the Tessiers were amazed that due to a lack of sufficient funding, only one oncologist – Dr Peter Downie – was employed. In addition to this, his time was divided between Monash Children’s Hospital’s Cancer Centre and the Royal Children’s Hospital, meaning that children with cancer were only being treated two days a week.

Thus the idea for ‘Bailey’s Day’ was conceived and the annual charity golf day, auction and luncheon has raised nearly $3 million over the last 14 years.

These very welcome funds are used by the Monash Medical Centre in Clayton to fund the employment of a clinical fellow at its Children’s Cancer Centre, meaning that children with cancer are now being treated every single day of the week. Bailey’s Day has also funded the training of 17 Oncologists and dramatically improved the quality of care protocol.

This year again we aim to donate a significant sum to the Monash Health Foundation to fund further research into brain tumour biology with your help.

This year, the famous Bailey’s Day luncheon, golf and auction day will fall on Tuesday December 4th and continued to build on a long and colourful tradition of inspiration and entertainment.

Some of the wonderful entertainers who have donated their time include Australian pop/rock legend Wendy Stapleton, along with fellow music icons Paul Norton and Michael Cristiano. In recent years we have been very blessed to enjoy talents of Wilbur Wilde, Barry Crocker, Lisa Edwards, Brian Cadd, Glenn Shorrock, Russell Morris and Normie Rowe.
