The rare disease patient is the orphan of the health system, often without diagnosis, without treatment, and therefore, without reason to hope. This needs to change.
The Steve Waugh Foundation is about Strength of Character. It’s at the core of what we do, from the people we support to the people who support us. We take a holistic approach to supporting children and young adults (0-25yrs) with the rarest diseases. Some children come for help once; others come back time and time again. We work to give these children and young adults a better quality of life, offering support and the opportunity to connect with others through individual grants, respite camps and raising awareness of rare diseases.

The Charity supports over 1500 families a year, we enable the family unit to stay connected and close to the medical care their child needs.FIND OUT MORE
