How much does a dream cost?

Thanks to the generosity of our supporters and volunteers there is no cost to the Dreamer.  We do have a budget we need to stick to and we work with our Dreamers to make the most of that budget.

Is a dream means tested?


Who is eligible?

Any cancer patient in Australia, 17 years and over, who fits the criteria of metastatic cancer, relapsed lymphoma, relapsed leukaemia and high grade brain tumours.

What’s the catch?

There is no catch! If you fit out criteria you are offered a dream.

How is a dream funded?

A dream is funded through the kindness of our donors, supporters who attend events, donating directly via our website and through community fundraising initiatives.

What dream can I do?

Each Dreamer is unique and so is each dream. Take a look at our Facebook and Instagram page and the dreams on our website to see what others have done.

How can I apply for a dream?

You can apply via our website - just fill out this form!

How long does it take?

The timing depends on the Deamer’s needs. Some dreams are turned around within 24 hours, other Dreamers take longer to plan their dream.

Can I surprise my loved one with a dream?

No, we don’t allow surprise dreams as it takes away some of the joy the Dreamer gets by deciding on their dream.

How many dreams do you grant?

Last year we are granted a dream every 38 hours.  Our goal is to make a dream come true every 24 hours.
