Support your Hospital.
Hannah’s story is an important reminder of the vital role your Hospital plays in our community. It is a place that all families can rely on when life suddenly throws the worst circumstances at them.
At seven years old Hannah had an accident that changed her life in an instant. Hannah was horse riding when she was thrown from her horse, fracturing her skull, resulting in very serious brain and neck injuries.
“It was the worst moment of my life when the Doctor told us how bad it was” said Hannah’s Dad, Sam.
The best place to be
Hannah spent the next three months of her life in the Women’s and Children’s Hospital, learning how to walk, read, write, talk and even eat again.
Today, two years after her accident, Hannah has come an incredible way, her recovery the testament of a loving family and dedicated support from the wonderful teams at the Hospital.
The Hospital is not a place we hope our children will ever have to visit. However, if they do, we rely on it to have the best equipment, services and staff available to care for our loved ones at what is often a scary and emotional time.
Your Hospital is there for you 24/7. The doors are always open.
Please support YOUR Hospital today.
On a personal note
“I have very blurry memories of standing outside the Emergency Room doors watching through the windows a team of incredible doctors and nurses rushing to save our daughters life…
…Hannah had been put in an induced coma in order to let her brain injury start to heal” – Hannah’s mum, Becky.
