16 INCREDIBLE YEARS – OVER $3.4 MILLION DOLLARS RAISED

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

And even though we can’t host our usual charity golf day, auction and luncheon this year, we’re still committed to raising funds for the training of Paediatric Oncologists and research.

We’re hoping you’ll help make a big-hearted difference this year with a generous donation to help us continue striving towards a cure for children’s cancer.

The Cause

‘Bailey’s Day’ is named after Bailey 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 Cancer Centre and the Royal Children’s Hospital, meaning that children with cancer were only being treated two half days a week.

Thus the idea for ‘Bailey’s Day’ was conceived and the annual charity golf day, auction and luncheon has raised over $3.4 million over the last 16 years.

These very welcome funds are used by the Monash Children’s Hospital to fund the provision of a clinical fellow each year at the Monash 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

Due to COVID-19 restrictions we were unable to host our usual event so this year we’ve decided to take it online with our Big-Hearted Bear campaign.

We’re hoping you can still make a big-hearted donation to help continue funding the great work Monash Children’s Cancer Centre is doing.

And don’t worry, our event will be back bigger and better than ever next year too!
