Super Sibling Day!

Super Siblings Day at Sydney Children's Hospital celebrates the siblings of patients with a disability or chronic health condition, and is an opportunity to say thank you for the incredible support they provide their brother or sister.

It aims to raise awareness of the importance of supporting siblings and all family members when they care for a child with a disability and/or medical needs.

Sydney Roosters Women's Captain Simaima Taufa was lucky enough to be invited to a special morning tea to celebrate the day.

"The experience was amazing! I met some incredibly brave, optimistic, resilient and bright children over the weekend," Simaima said.

"To see their smiling faces through all the adversity they've been through with their family has taught me so much about being grateful and appreciative of what we have, and who we have in our lives, and being mindful about the little things we do have."

The event provided an opportunity for over 100 siblings to meet children in similar situations in a fun and relaxed environment.

"These kids are only beginning to live their lives and they've been dealt with many obstacles to overcome, but to see their smiling faces and to hear the excitement in their voices melts my heart.

"The little part we do get them smiling is so fulfilling.

"I appreciate the opportunity to be part of this amazing experience".

Super Siblings had the opportunity to meet special guests and engage with fun activities such as face painting, arts and crafts, cake decorating, and games.
