Through the eye of a lens
Our photographer-in-residence Jimmy Pozarik recently revisited some patients he photographed in Hospital through past projects. The result is ‘Then and Now’, a poignant collection capturing a moment in a patient’s journey then, and where they are now.
You did it!
You helped us raise over $6 million for our Gold Appeal! During May and June, a host of fundraising activities and events took place in support of patients and families cared for at the Hospital.
Humans of the Hospital
We would like to introduce you to Aoife, a Children's Intensive Care Physiotherapist. She has a passion for helping children and their families, helping them through critical stages of their medical journey.
Special care - when and where it matters most
Palliative care is a very special service for children not only preparing for the end of their child’s life but for children with serious illnesses and life-limiting conditions. Family Support Volunteers are essential to this service, visiting families at home, helping to support a family’s unique needs. It’s a rewarding, but also emotionally demanding, role and one that needed our support.
Emma Evans has always sought out areas in her life where she could make a difference. After working across the Foundation for two years, Emma is passionate about helping those in the community who choose to leave a legacy through a bequest in their Will.
Let’s cure homesickness
Recently we launched a unique national fundraising initiative, Curing Homesickness, bringing children’s hospitals from across Australia together to get kids home from hospital sooner.
Donations will go towards helping kids in hospital get back home, where they belong, by investing in ground-breaking research, state-of-the-art technology, and the amazing doctors, nurses and allied health professionals who deliver the care children need.
What's on this Winter?
There are lots of ways to support the Foundation and have fun at the same time this winter. Take on a challenge by signing up to Blackmores Running Festival or immerse yourself in our Winter Art Exibition.
