National Patron

Robyn Moore

Robyn first got involved with Make-A-Wish when she recorded an ad for us in 1997... using her Blinky Bill voice! The fun-loving Tasmanian soon became a volunteer with the Hobart branch, with a passion and commitment for Make-A-Wish that is inspiring.

As one of Australia’s most in-demand speakers, we love that she shares wish stories with her audience as she travels across the country.

“I love telling people about the amazing work we do... When we share our stories, we enable people to fall back in love with life – and remind them about the fragility of life, the importance of family and community, and what really matters,” Robyn says.

Some 20 years on, Robyn says she’s still learning and growing from her experiences with wish children and their families.

Robyn was inducted into our Volunteer Hall of Fame in 2015, after being nominated by her peers for her boundless enthusiasm and impact.

When we share our stories, people fall back in love with life – we remind them what really matters.

Melissa Doyle

Melissa is a much-loved Australian media personality, known for interviewing some of the world’s most famous faces and multiple Silver Logie nominations for Most Popular Television Presenter.

In 2016, she was made a Member of the Order of Australia (AM) for her significant service both to the media and community, including her roles representing charitable organisations.

As a mother of two, we recognised Melissa's empathy for families experiencing the stress and turmoil of life-threatening illness. In her role as Make-A-Wish National Patron, she is passionate about raising awareness of our mission, and the impact a wish has on a child’s mental, emotional and physical health.

My dream is to ensure every Australian child with a life-threatening illness is given the opportunity to experience the power of a wish.
