I'm challenging myself to 21 days without riding my mountain bike.
I am taking on Challenge 21 to raise funds to support sick kids who are cared for by the Women's and Children's Hospital.
The WCH Foundation relies on the generous contributions from the community to brighten the lives of patients and their families and support brilliant care at the Women’s and Children’s Hospital.
Please DONATE NOW and support my challenge.

My storyTuesday 14th Sep
My name is Oskar and I’m 14 years old. Just recently I was diagnosed with a brain tumour requiring surgery. Luckily the tumour was benign and surgery went well. I had a few setbacks (leaks of CSF from my wound and an infection), requiring a second operation for a washout of wound and bone removal. The infection and leaks made me quite anxious, but with help from WCH staff, family and friends, I’m feeling much better today. I’m still on IV antibiotics via a PICC line and is now recovering with twice weekly visit to WCH and daily visits from lovely RDNS nurses in our home.
I am an outdoors person and really love riding my mountain bike. Not being able to do for a while is a really big challenge for me, hence my 21 day challenge choice!
My family and I are so extremely grateful for the excellent care we received from Women’s and Children’s Hospital. There are no words good enough to describe how thankful we are for Neurosurgeon Dr. A/Prof Amal Abou-Hamden, Neurosurgeon Dr. Chris Oveden, Neurosurgical RMO Dr.Sundus Raza. Forever thankful for their kind and high quality care! We are also very grateful for all the other Doctors and Nurses in PICU and Kate Hill Ward, Psychologist Hala Abokamil, Physiotherapists, Play therapist, Linda, the starlight room staff, all the PCA’s/cleaners and admin staff on the wards.
Everyone made such an impact on my stay and to my recovery from brain surgery.
My mum, Kristin Moen, used to work as an RN at WCH for 15 years. She was lucky to look after beautiful Sam Roberts and his lovely family on 4th floor medical ward. It is therefore also good to say “thank you” to WCH by doing “Challenge 21” started by the Roberts family.
I’d like to thank everyone who support me to support other sick kids and their families going through challenging times.
