At the age of 3, Rhian Sandstrom was unexpectedly diagnosed with a tumour behind her eye. Within a week of diagnosis, Rhian had her eye removed and was faced with 6 months of scheduled Chemotherapy.
With medical bills mounting, Rhian’s parents financially were unable to finish off their plans for a play safe backyard. An unfinished and sandy backyard was unsafe for Rhian to play in and was forcing her to be indoors. WA Charity Direct completed the backyard with lawn and specialised play equipment for little Rhian to enjoy.
