Forever grateful to the team at RCH

Good Friday Appeal 2024

We will be forever grateful to the RCH…

In August 2023, in just 24 hours, our beautiful, healthy 13 year old daughter went from being her normal, vibrant self who was out for dinner with her friends, to critically ill on a ventilator in intensive care, in the RCH Rosella Unit. She unbeknownst to us had Influenza B and RSV which turned to pneumonia and sepsis, and later a collapsed lung and kidney failure. The next 3 weeks would be some of the most challenging of our lives. We were lucky our precious Maddie made a full recovery thanks to the world class care she received at The RCH, and we will support this wonderful cause every year with gratitude for all they did for our daughter and our family.

I've created this page because I want to make a difference to the lives of sick kids.

The Good Friday Appeal relies on the support of the community to raise funds to ensure that The Royal Children's Hospital is able to continue to provide world class care to patients and their families. From 2022 to 2023 at The Royal Children's Hospital: 90,260 patients presented to the Emergency Department, 50,345 children and young people were admitted to a ward, 407,563 children and young people attended an outpatient appointment, and 14,963 patients underwent surgery. So please help by giving whatever you are able to this fundraiser and help spread the word by sharing this page with your friends, family and networks. Thank you for your generosity, it means a lot!
