Crows Care Story Image.jpg

The Crows Children’s Foundation receives many varied requests to support children in need. Whether it is hosting a child at a private training session, a visit to a child in hospital or complimentary tickets to an AFL Crows home game, the CCF will always make a special experience for a child a priority.

Sometimes a meeting with your favourite player can provide a boost for the whole family and memories to treasure.

Recently Crows Care surprised a young supporter on his 11th birthday. James Siviour from Port Lincoln, has been living in Adelaide at the Leukaemia Foundation Village with his dad Evan since last May when he was first diagnosed with the blood cancer.  

He met the team in July briefly at a training session but was too ill to stay long. In December James came to the Crows Children’s Foundation Christmas party, made possible by Crows Care.

His dad Evan rang in February to say James was finally in remission and going home to be reunited with his mum and siblings soon. Would it be possible to come and say goodbye?

The planets aligned and James was our special guest at a closed training session on his actual birthday where players Josh Jenkins and Brad Crouch surprised him with a birthday cake.

“Thank you to the Club and players for organizing. Nothing was too much trouble. James has had an amazing day!” – Evan Siviour, James’s Dad
