Excecutive Officer
Crystal Lee Foundation

The Crystal Lee Foundation was founded in 2019 to fill a gap in care for people between the ages of 13 and 24 affected with an oncology diagnosis, their families and the community as a whole.

Receiving an oncology diagnosis is never expected and the reality that a person of such a young age is about to have their life drastically altered is hard to comprehend. Life as it once was, will never be the same.

That is where we come in. The Crystal Lee Foundation currently offers a number of service streams for young people diagnosed with cancer including Individual Support,  Family Support and  Bereavement Counselling. The Crystal Lee Foundation has also founded and operates Crystal Lee Foundation Op Shop.

All of the Crystal Lee Foundation services are at no cost to the person or family accessing our services.
