Nigel
“The backbone of what I do is to find a cure for my little girl. My journey to medical research is different to others. In 2006, my daughter Ella was born and very soon after she was in intensive care and diagnosed with cystic fibrosis. The whole experience inspired me to go back to university to help her. I did three degrees over eight years to get a PhD in Medicine and now I am doing a postdoctoral in researching gene therapy and stem cells to prevent lung disease in people with cystic fibrosis.”

Arts in health

Creativity to reduce stress & promote health

Arts in Health creates an interactive and bright hospital environment that improves the health and wellbeing of patients and their families. Through art, play and music we encourage curiosity and creativity to reduce children's stress of being in hospital.

Leeza and Lina
“One of my patients, who was eight-years-old, wasn't speaking to anybody other than whispering to her two-year-old sister. When speaking with the family, I would speak in a manner that was child-friendly saying 'your daughter is on holiday from talking at the moment', letting her know it was okay to choose not to talk. This was important in building trust. When kids can't express their emotions verbally we use play and with her I used sand tray therapy. When no one else was around, she would draw words in the sand. She then whispered two words to me. I was the first person in hospital she spoke to.”

- Leeza, Play Therapist

Hospital facilities & equipment

Access to equipment helping children go home

With your support, we help fund medical equipment both in and out of the Hospital to assist children throughout all stages of their treatment. Having access to equipment that can be taken home reduces the time of hospital stays, allowing children to enjoy their family environment sooner.

Dimi
“Dimi coming home was an Easter I'll never forget! It made a huge difference to our lives because we were finally home as a family, instead of spending birthdays and Christmases in hospital. It was scary at first because there was a fair bit of equipment we needed but it meant our family was finally together.”

- Anne, Dimi's mum

Family support programs

The Beach House

Together we provide greater support for families outside the walls of the Hospital through funding special projects and initiatives such as the Women's & Children's Hospital Foundation Beach House.

Remiko and Allira
“The Beach House project is so vital and important to families like ours. It means we can once again enjoy time with our friends and family to create forever memories and for once feel 'normal' and not so isolated and alone.”

- Remiko, Allira's mum
