“I would encourage anyone to consider being a part of the LifeCare team. It is a great way to give back to the community and provides lifelong friendships.”
Dave Cuddon and his family have been a big part of LifeCare from the very beginning. Dave volunteers with the LifeCare ‘s Finance Care program, equipping people with skills and encouraging them through financial mentoring. His wife, Katrina, volunteers in the Prayer Ministry, and their children, Steph and Lachie, fundraised for LifeCare by running in the Melbourne Marathon.

Our goal is to raise much needed funds to support our programs.
