Maya’s Rest is a legacy to resident host’s Mark and Tash’s daughter and Amelia’s sister, Maya, who was born with a very rare form of soft tissue cancer called Rhabdomyosarcoma. Maya inspired so many people during her two year battle with cancer and continues to do so each day.

Bear Cottage Manly

During Maya’s battle with cancer we sought respite at Bear Cottage in Manly NSW, which offers respite and palliative care to families of children with life limiting illnesses. We visited Bear Cottage several times in Maya’s final year and was the place in which Maya earned her wings.

We believe without such support we would not of been able to make it through the difficult times.

In Maya’s honour we offer families from the Canberra and surrounding regions the chance to spend quality time together and make everlasting memories.
