Rebecca's Story

Faced with pain and suffering no child should bear alone, Rebecca’s* life took a dangerous turn.

Portrait Of Teenage Girl With Brown Eyes In Hoodie And Biker Jacket

When Rebecca’s mum got cancer, Rebecca’s whole world began to crumble around her.

Rebecca was in such a dark place. She found herself travelling down a path of self-destruction.

By the time she came to MacKillop at just 13 years old, Rebecca was using drugs to escape her feelings, skipping school to hang out with older boys, going out late at night, and sometimes disappearing for days at a time.

Her self-esteem was so low that when her MacKillop carer, Sarah, saw her upset one day and asked her what had happened, Rebecca told her “I’m a lost cause, I’m too far gone, I’m not worth it”.

We need to be there for any child who has lost their way to ensure they feel loved and valued.

But we can’t do it without you.

Your gift today can ensure children receive the support, nurturing, and care they need to heal and grow.

Please give today so kids like Rebecca get the support they need to find a better path forward.
