Brave conquers fear: That's a family motto for 9NEWS anchor Cheryl Preheim's family.

It was started by her son Joshua.

They made a T-shirt design a couple of years ago; little did he know he would end up needing heart surgery shortly after and his baby brother would also need to be in the NICU at Children's Hospital.'

Cheryl and Joshua and the entire family returned to Children's to give that T-shirt to other families on Tuesday.

They met inside the Ryan Seacrest Radio Studios and shared their story and encouraged others, some who are just beginning their journey.
