Join Fabian on his Journey in Tassie
In March 2021 – Covid permitting, Fabian will be undertaking a journey to Tassie. His primary mission – alongside having a lot of fun and posting pictures of himself around this gorgeous landscape is to raise money for the Wesley Mission Queensland and Hummingbird House.
By sponsoring Fabian in this adventure you will also raise fund so that more families like Archie’s can receive vital care and create precious memories.
Wesley Mission Queensland has been caring for the Queensland community for more than 100 years. They provide a range of vital community services and programs, supporting youth and families, seniors, people living with a disability and people experiencing unemployment, disadvantage, homelessness and isolation.
As the first provider of aged care in Queensland they have been honoured to share in the lives of seniors for generations through residential aged care, in-home care, respite care and premier independent retirement living options. They are known and respected by government, industry partners and the community for our ability to provide and initiate services and programs in response to the ever-changing needs within the community.
In all that they do, they strive to empower those they work with through compassion, commitment to justice and the desire to create an inclusive society for all. By working together, we can realise this vision.

About Hummingbird House
At any given time, nearly 5,000 Queensland families are living with, loving, and caring for a child with a life-limiting condition—defined as a condition where a child is not expected to reach 18 years of age. The emotional, physical and financial struggle for these families can be immense. And the opportunity to stay connected—to their partners, other children, family and friends—almost impossible, as they navigate their new role of 24-7 carer.
Hummingbird House is Queensland’s only children’s hospice, and one of only three children’s hospices in Australia. They provide a warm and welcoming medically supported home away from home for these families, which can encompass short break stays, family support services, creative therapies, and when the time comes—end of life and after death care.
Hummingbird House is a place where kids can be kids, families can reconnect, and precious memories can be created.

Mum Jenna recalls the day her beautiful boys Archie and Henry were born. “Like any other young family expecting their first child, or in our case twins, we were excited about what lay ahead for our instant family of four. The boys were born 10 weeks early at Mater Mothers’ Hospital on the 4th of August 2018. Henry was born healthy and just needed a little time to grow and learn how to suck feed before we were able to take him home 6 weeks later. Archie was born with Chronic Neonatal Lung Disease and Interstitial Lung Disease and later confirmed Alveolar Growth Simplification.”
Even with such a devastating diagnosis, Archie was determined to follow his own path. “Archie defied the odds at every turn. He survived the first weekend, first few weeks, and we made it to their due date and then our first Christmas together as a family of four. We were lucky enough to be able to spend 5.5 months getting to know our little superhero.”
Funds raised from adventure will help Hummingbird House continue to provide cost-free support and care for children and families throughout Queensland.
