History & Goals

History of The Kyle Andrews Foundation Inc.

The Kyle Andrews Foundation was established as a legacy to a brave young Broome boy, Kyle Andrews, who lost his battle with cancer at the age of 11. In early 1998 Kyle was undergoing treatment for leukaemia at Princess Margaret Hospital and had a dream of bringing some of his young friends from Ward 3B to Cable Beach so that, in his words “they might feel better”.

Thanks to the generosity of the people of Broome “Kyle’s Camp 98” was organised and for those children who attended, together with their carers and the organisers, the camp proved such a wonderful and enriching experience that it was determined that it be made an annual event. Kyle passed away in July 1998 after experiencing the first Kyle’s Camp. The Kyle Andrews Foundation group has been working together since 1998 to achieve Kyle’s dream and was fully incorporated as a registered charity with the Australian Taxation Office in early 2000.

In May 2017 The Foundation will celebrate the 20th Kyle's Camp.
