Our families are no strangers to isolation and uncertainty.

When everyday life is turned upside down by a child’s serious illness or injury, the one thing most families desperately long for is a bit of normality again – something we can all relate to at the moment.

XXX gives families struggling with extraordinary circumstances practical care and suppport when they need it most.

We want to be there for families like Eleanor’s who will turn to us after we survive these unprecented times and for many years to come. Now, as our major fundraising events are disrupted, we need your support more than ever. Your urgent gift this tax time will help family life carry on during these tough times.

At the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, 20-month old Eleanor suffered a serious accident requiring burns treatments and skin graft surgery. She couldn’t get the medical care she needed at her local hospital.

She and her family made the nearly 400km trip to Townsville so she could receive the urgent care she needed.

“XXX cared for us when we found ourselves in an unfamiliar town, with an injured baby and no friends or family support close by,” said mum Leigh.

Due to restrictions at the time, Eleanor and her family were unable to stay directly at our Townsville House – but our XXXe team did everything we could, to ensure the entire family were able to stay together.

“The Charity assisted us with family-friendly accommodation, so we could be together and focus on our baby girl’s recovery,” said Leigh.

“Our unit overlooked the river and walking path. The river walk was our daily outing that kept our spirits up during isolation and COVID-19.

“I am overwhelmed whenever I think of the care package that arrived at our door – milk, bread, groceries, presents for both our children. Sometimes the simplest things mean the most.”

In the event that we have received enough funds for initiatives on this page, your donation will go where it’s needed most, supporting our seriously ill children and their families.
