Picture a child fighting for their life in a hospital bed. Their family is desperate for any hope of recovery. They need the best healthcare, the best equipment, and the brightest minds in medicine. But what happens when there are no options left?
It wasn’t that long ago that infectious diseases like measles, mumps, and rubella caused thousands of hospitalizations in Australia each year. Polio caused paralysis and death for thousands of Aussie children. Poor children did not have access to the same level of healthcare as the rich ones.
Thanks to the tireless efforts of medical professionals and the generosity of people like you, much has changed. Today, Sydney Children’s Hospitals Foundation (SCHF) is here for the newborns and the not-yet-borns, the toddlers and the teenagers, from inner cities to outer suburbs, rural and beyond. We believe that every child deserves the best possible healthcare, no matter what. We believe that no child should ever hear the words “Sorry, we can’t help you.”
We need your help to make that a reality.
By leaving a gift in your Will to Sydney Children’s Hospitals Foundation, you will be investing in the future of children’s healthcare. Your gift can help fund life-saving transport services for the sickest babies and infants. Your gift can support the only palliative care hospice for children in New South Wales, providing long-term ongoing support to children with life-limiting illnesses and their families. Your gift can help fund research that ensures every child has a fighting chance at the childhood they deserve.
Anne McFadden, Head of Planned Giving at SCHF says. ‘Leaving a gift in your Will is a big decision, but what better gift, what better legacy to leave, than the gift of life’.
By planting a tree today, you can ensure that future generations can enjoy its shade. And by leaving a gift in your Will, you can ensure that children of the future can get the best possible healthcare.
