$12,230,565 million reasons to smile

The generous spirit of Queenslanders has raised an incredible $12,230,565 for sick kids and their families. The money raised will help the Children’s Hospital Foundation support kids by funding life-saving medical research and providing patient and family support programs.

Over the past four years, the Channel Nine Telethon has raised over $46 million, which is made possible by the generosity of our Presenting Partners, and the Queensland community.

At the Channel Nine Telethon, the sold-out studio audience was rubbing shoulders all night, with celebrities such as football legends Wally Lewis and Ben Hunt, and television stars from Channel Nine’s hit drama, Hyde & Seek were on the phone panel accepting donations. Live performances from Judah, Dragon, Pseudo Echo, Leo Sayer and Dami Im brought the audience to their feet as they danced into the night to the hits of Australia’s biggest artists.

A mystical place to escape the everyday – there was an Enchanted Garden next door to the Channel Nine Telethon broadcast where The Coffee Club Telethon Ball was taking place. More than 1,000 people dressed in theme for magical night. Guests enjoyed special performances from Leo Sayer, Dragon, Psaeudo Echo and Judah, winner of The Voice 2017.

Thank you to everyone who donated, and special thanks to our presenting partners Woolworths, Queensland Government, Golden Casket, The Coffee Club, BOQ,  Sunsuper, Triple M, The Courier Mail and The Sunday Mail. Your support will help kids to laugh and smile, get better and go home sooner.

Stefanovic and Jeffreys to join fundraiser for sick kids

HOME is where the heart is for Channel Nine’s golden couple Sylvia Jeffreys and Peter Stefanovic. The couple, who married in April, will return to their native Queensland to co-host the Channel Nine Telethon in Brisbane on November 18 for the Children’s Hospital Foundation.

Despite both working for the Today show, the pair prefer to keep their relationship and work duties separate, but will make an exception in an effort to raise funds.

“I can’t wait to get back to my home state, to help the Children’s Hospital Foundation and the team at Nine raise money for the sick kids of Queensland,” Stefanovic said.

Jeffreys and Stefanovic will be joined on stage by Today’s Richard Wilkins and Natalia Cooper and Today Extra hosts Sonia Kruger and David Campbell.

Channel 9 is set to fly some of its best talent to man the phones with The Block, Family Food Fight, Married At First Sight, The Voice and even upcoming drama Bite Club all to be represented. The Channel Nine Telethon has raised more than $34 million in three years.

By making a donation, Queenslanders will help the Children’s Hospital Foundation support, care and entertain our sickest kids and their families while they’re in hospital and they can be part of something big – funding world-class research to find better treatments and ultimately cures for our most devastating childhood diseases.

We would also like to thank our presenting partners – the Queensland Government, Woolworths, BOQ, Golden Casket, The Coffee Club, The Courier Mail and The Sunday Mail, Triple M and Sunsuper – and their staff and customers for their wonderful support.

The Channel Nine Telethon will occur on Saturday 18 November. If you are interested in donating to help sick kids smile and laugh, get better and go home sooner, call 1800 909 900, or donate online now.

Each week, a child just like Slater walks through the doors of our children's hospital and is diagnosed with brain cancer. That's one child a week whose life is changed in an instant by what their scan shows.

Slater’s oncologist, Dr Tim Hassall, loves working with children like Slater at our children’s hospital, but the difficulties of a brain cancer diagnosis are always tough: “some kids may not live through the year, others have more hope - there’s so much scope for research.”

“The unfortunate reality is that without the support of generous people in our community, the future simply does not look bright for children like Slater. This is one of those life or death situations - there is no other way to put it.”

Give hope to Slater and his family this Christmas by helping fund urgently needed brain cancer research. Read more about Slater at https://hubs.ly/H095XF_0.

Slater was diagnosed with brain cancer when he was 17 months old. And sadly, this could be his last Christmas.

"You look around our house, there's so many toys. I tried to stop buying them, but I look at them and think 'what if he's not going to grow old enough to enjoy this?' - I've got to get it for him now." - Slater's mum, Bianca.

Brain cancer kills more children than any other disease in Australia. Give an incredible gift this Christmas by helping fund vital brain cancer research.

Together, with your help, we can save the lives of children like Slater. Read more about his story at www.childrens.org.au/helpslater.

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas, thanks to the help of The Prop House and Kennards Hire!

The special 7.5m high Christmas tree took more than 4 hours to install and will be enjoyed by hundreds of families spending the festive season in hospital this year.

This year, the Children's Hospital Foundation will continue to support sick kids and their families when they are in hospital by offering a range of very special Christmas parties and events - as well as a big, jolly visitor to the wards on Christmas Day - that provide welcome distractions and entertainment for all.

Christmas came early for sick kids at the Lady Cilento Children’s Hospital this week when MASKS Foundation Queensland joined forces with Santa, and the Queensland Police Service, in their annual toy drive.

The impressive cavalcade of police, accompanied by Santa and Stefan, delivered hundreds of toys and presents to children, many of whom will be spending the break in hospital.

Everything we do is made possible by the generosity and support of our partners and the community - thank you to MASKS (Make A Sick Kid Smile), the Queensland Police Service and all our supporters for putting big smiles on little faces this Christmas.
