Meet Elly

In late 2014, little Elly ingested a tiny amount of hospitality cleaner (the red chemical used to clean off baking trays). It was just a small amount, but it was enough to do a huge amount of damage.

Children's Hospital Foundation

The Children’s Hospital Foundation works wonders for sick kids by funding life-saving medical research, investing in vital new equipment, and providing some amazing entertainment, family support and care programs for sick kids. Our incredible volunteers are there to support little patients while they are in hospital, helping them to laugh and smile, get better and go home with their families. Everything we do is made possible by the generosity of our partners and supporters. With your help, we will continue to fund research to achieve faster diagnoses, better treatments and ultimately cures for some of the most devastating childhood illnesses and injuries. There’s a lot you can do to support a child with an injury, serious illness or life threatening disease. You can donate money to help save precious young lives. Donate your time to make a difference at our children’s hospital. Or raise funds for vital research and equipment, spread smiles and support families through difficult times. You can make a difference and with your support, the wonders will never cease and the care will never stop.

An accident can happen to anyone at any time. And when it happened to Tanya and her three children it was extremely serious.

In a matter of seconds, their lives were turned upside down. Little Abi—who was only three-years-old—suffered the worst injuries. If she hadn’t been resuscitated several times by the side of the road, she would never have even made it to our children’s hospital where the trauma team worked tirelessly to save her life.

Abi didn’t give up. She fought for her life, as did doctors, surgeons
and trauma nurses at our children’s hospital. Her injuries were
shocking and life-changing.

A big part of what the Children's Hospital Foundation does is giving kids in hospital the thing they crave the most – the chance to just be a kid.

Check out all the action from last month’s Juiced TV episodes, featuring our TV Week Logies roving reporters, a visit from gold medallist Paralympian Brenden Hall, arts and crafts fun, bike riding and more.

Juiced TV is a unique television show funded by the Children’s Hospital Foundation to provide fun and entertainment for kids in hospital.

The Children's Hospital Foundation was proud to be a part of the mini Olympics school sports day today at Lady Cilento Children's Hospital.

Our Olympic and Paralympic medallists faced their toughest challenge yet, as kids from the hospital competed with them to take out first place.

Our kids participated in Olympic heats including sack races, three-legged races, ball games and more!

Thank you to our Olympian and Paralympian heroes who took time out of their busy training schedule to help us provide a welcome distraction for our sick kids and their families.

Juiced TV host Alexis recently sat down with Children's Hospital Foundation volunteer, Donna.

Donna is a volunteer in our operating theatre waiting area where children and their families prepare for surgery at Lady Cilento Children's Hospital.

This can be a scary time for children and their families, so our special volunteers like Donna are there to offer a friendly smile and support.

Donna said she volunteers because she has so much love in her heart that she needs to share.
