Help Give Emma A Voice
Emma suffered from an undiagnosed and untreated stroke during birth that left her with permanent brain damage and physical disability. This means that Emma cannot speak, sit or stand independently and requires a wheelchair. Emma needs help doing everyday tasks like eating, drinking and dressing. “Living with Cerebral Palsy, Dystonia and Epilepsy can be frustrating and makes her sad sometimes, but most days she is happy” says Mum, Doreen.
Living in Cairns, Far North Queensland, access to therapies, treatments, specialist therapies and equipment is limited which means Emma and Doreen often have travel to Sydney to seek medical care.
Doreen solely provides care for Emma which results in most weekends dedicated to fundraising together instead of spending time and playing with her friends and family.

My Spirit & Emmas Quest
Jo and Martin first met Emma when her Mum was selling raffle tickets to help raise much needed funds and felt an instant connection and wanted to do more.
Last year, the crew of Spirit had the privilege of sharing a very special day out on the water with Emma and her Mum Doreen, where we anchored in the crystal clear waters of Fitzroy Island and Emma enjoyed some water sports and eating a delicious lunch with her friends.
It was a memorable day not only for Emma and her friends but also provided their carers with some much needed respite.
