 'I just want to warn you. You're going to dive to the end of the cave. You're going to see these kids. They're all looking healthy and happy and smiley. Then, you're going to swim away, and they're probably all going to die.'

Dr Richard 'Harry' Harris OAM, a former joint Australian of the Year and KIDS Foundation Ambassador, joined an international team to tackle a challenge that was against all odd and is sharing his involvement in the 2018 Thai cave rescue, a story that had the whole world holding its breath.

Harry is a supporter of the KIDS Foundation and is here to launch Dr Susie O'Neill's book; 

"...an autobiography of a teachers’ devotion to the ‘at-risk’ child. It is through the unimaginable tragedies of others Susie found her purpose. This book shares a collection of uplifting stories of transformation. From the ashes of the past, they have risen and followed a path of self-discovery and healing, to a place of belonging, and sometimes the best things that will ever happen to them. Working with hundreds of survivors of unbelievable trauma, abuse and burns, Susie has learnt that from bad things good things can grow. The courage and strength of these incredible people are shared in their powerful stories throughout this book."  

Join Harry and Susie and be captivated by extraordinary stories. His and Susie's story is one of tenacity, courage and resilience.
