Daryl Braithwaite and Australian Idol winner Royston Noell will unite with a host of big names from the worlds of music, sport, and media when the Sony Foundation host their star-studded fundraising lunch, Brissy4Ward, to raise funds to expand their You Can Stay accommodation program which provides regional cancer patients across Queensland, and Australia, with access to lifesaving treatment.
One-third of youth cancer patients are from regional areas and they are more likely to suffer mental health issues, financial strain and isolation due to the increased burden of seeking life-saving treatment in major cities.
The survival rate of Australians living more than 200km from cancer treatment can be up to 30% lower than people living close by.
Sony Foundation’s You Can Stay program is an innovative accommodation program specifically designed for the unique needs of youth cancer patients, providing free and uncapped accommodation in a oneu0002bedroom or two-bedroom apartment near city hospitals.

You Can Stay enables regional and rural youth cancer patients and their families to stay together, ensuring they have emotional support and stability while away from home, essential for any cancer journey, without the financial burden.
