Please Donate before June 30 to help patients like Beaudine at the RBWH.


Beaudine’s life has been one big adventure.

Beaudine and her 11 siblings live an extraordinary life with their parents. For 15 years, they have travelled Australia in their beloved bus, The Gauntlet, working as camel drovers and station hands. Three years ago, while passing through the Top End in their beloved bus, they stopped at Robin’s Falls for a quick swim and cool off. Crocodiles were known to frequent the swimming hole, but the experienced travelers did a thorough check of the water and knew they were safe. Their dog Barkley, however, had other ideas and took off in the direction of the sunbathing crocs further upstream. The family’s second-eldest daughter, 16-year-old ...

World record and $300,000 to benefit melanoma patients

They came, they ran, and they nailed it … A world record, a gruelling one million metres underfoot and $300,000 raised to enable significant improvements in the management of melanoma patients at RBWH. Twelve doctors from all over Queensland trained and raised funds for nine months ahead of the gruelling three-day challenge in October where they ran one million meters on treadmills at RBWH in the fastest time ever recorded. If fact, the team smashed the world record by more than 11 hours completing the mammoth run in 71 hours 41 min and 11 sec.

Please help us care for our tiniest patients this Christmas.

"When your child is just so unwell, you have to trust the hospital.  At Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital, you only get the highest level of care. This place is absolutely incredible."

Instead, they’re planning to spend most of the day here at Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) celebrating their daughters Ari first Christmas. Baby Ari was delivered by emergency caesarean at just 24 weeks – dangerously early. ...
