Sarah Lee has raised just over $1500 for Redkite, an organisation that helped her son Braxton Williams, who was diagnosed with a brain tumour in January last year.
Ms Lee participated in the Crunch 4 Kids with Cancer challenge, completing 20 crunches a day from June 1 to June 20 to raise money for other families in a similar position.
"I passed my original goal of $1000 thanks to the generous donations from friends, family and strangers in the community," Ms Lee said.
"I have already signed up to Redkite's Dry July challenge."
Redkite, Australia's leading childhood cancer support organisation, provides essential financial backing for families, as well as funding music therapists and social workers in children's cancer wards.
Ms Lee said Redkite had been there from early in Braxton's cancer diagnosis and had provided grants to help meet the extra costs of chemotherapy treatment at the Royal Children's Hospital.
"They also provided us with Coles vouchers and helped pay our utility bills," Ms Lee said.
"It is handy when you have that extra financial support, you have other expenses and your bills don't stop because your child is sick."
Ms Lee had a telehealth appointment with Braxton's oncologist Monday morning who said they will keep him off treatment for the moment, in hope that his tumour has become stagnant.
"He has had chemo for the last eight months and it will be nice to give him a break," Ms Lee said.
"Hopefully he can start back at school after the school holidays, get back into a bit of normality and see his friends."
