Last year we asked for your help to fund our Hospital Support Packs. Every Hospital Support Pack we give to a family at time of diagnosis costs $400 and we needed your help to meet the demand for 2020.
You may remember, this pack includes practical, essential items for the whole family such as toiletries, a diary compendium, digital thermometer, a bedside game, plus some Coles Myer vouchers and family entertainment passes – as well as an Elliot dog for the sick child to have by their side throughout their journey.
Thanks to every dollar you donated and items given by local businesses means we can ensure families are supported from the very beginning when their child first arrives in hospital.
We were also hoping to upgrade our tote bag to a more practical overnight bag, and thanks to your generosity, we have been able to do just that. What a difference!
