Our Inspiration

COOK2CURE is dedicated to Sienna Hoffmann, a special little girl who is the inspiration behind the charity Neuroblastoma Australia.

Sienna was diagnosed with neuroblastoma when she was just nine months old and endured relentless treatments. After 10 months Sienna was in remission, but sadly the cancer returned just after she turned two years old. There is currently no cure for relapsed neuroblastoma. 

Tragically Sienna passed away when she was just two and a half years old. Too many young children lose their lives to this disease – their future and the expected future of an entire family is suddenly cruelly destroyed. The only way to find answers to this disease is through research and funding.
