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.
“On the sixth day of Isaiah's life, when we should have been driving him home, and showing him his new nursery and teddy bears, he was having his chest cut open for a massive operation on his heart.” – Isaiah’s mum, Karen.
Isaiah is now two years old, but he still requires daily medication and will need more surgery on his heart as his body grows.
Through your generous donation, a research breakthrough could help sick kids just like Isaiah live happier, longer lives.
At just seven months old, Carlton was badly burned by oil from a deep fryer.
Watch Carlton's story as part of the 'Skin Deep' series, proudly made possible by the Children's Hospital Foundation.
The 'Skin Deep' series was created to help and support children adjust to life after a burn injury. Our videos are focussed on coping with treatment, returning to daily life, managing public interest and planning for the future.
