Kenzie’s Gift was founded in 2008 by Nic Russell in memory of her 3 year old daughter Kenzie. The story of Kenzie’s Gift is not one of miracles. It is one of the gutsy determination, tenacity and love of an amazing and beautiful little girl, Kenzie. Kenzie was only two years old when she was diagnosed with cancer and sadly died on the 29th of December 2005. Through this tragedy came the hope for families that is Kenzie’s Gift.

Our purpose is to support the emotional well-being and mental health of tamariki, mātātahi (young people) and their families affected by cancer, serious illness or bereavement. We achieve this through the provision of one on one therapy with registered mental health professionals, the delivery of printed cancer and grief packs for tamariki, and an extensive online information resource.

We receive no government funding. All this is made possible by wonderful supporters, donors, grants, philanthropists and fundraising initiatives, ensuring the Gift keeps on giving to those who need it.

Please accept this Gift from us now. It comes with aroha and hope for your future.

For our FREE interactive hard copy support kits please contact us via the form at the bottom of the page.

The free kits are available to you if your tamariki and rangatahi are affected by serious illness or grief. We also have digital guides for parents/caregivers.
This support kit was developed with much aroha to assist our young Kiwis affected by serious illness or grief. We kindly request a koha of $5 to download the digital kit. This contribution helps ensure we can continue to expand our resources library with new initiatives to support our tamariki, rangatahi, and their whānau. Thank you for your understanding and aroha.
