We are the charity for Royal Brisbane and Women's Hospital (RBWH), the Surgical Treatment and Rehabilitation Service (STARS), Redcliffe Hospital and many of the prestigious research Institutes and Centres at the Herston Health Precinct.
Your generosity buys time for researchers to develop breakthrough treatments. Time for doctors to consider new diagnoses and provide the best possible care for their patients. And time for families to continue to enjoy every precious moment with the people they love, hopeful about what the future holds. You help the RBWH Foundation achieve so much.
Every year RBWH:

The most precious Christmas of all
It was just before Christmas, two years ago, that Brisbane mother Victoria received the news that would change her life forever.
In between caring for her energetic 2-year-old son Jimmy, juggling a busy career and planning for her upcoming wedding, Victoria was diagnosed with an aggressive form of cancer - grade 3 Invasive Ductal Carcinoma Triple Negative Breast Cancer.
There was no family history of breast cancer, and her only symptoms were fatigue and a small lump on her breast. “The first thing I thought was ‘Am I going to see Jimmy grow up?’ Even if I get through my treatment, how will I have the energy to take care of him?” said Victoria.
The young mother’s hopes for a total cure rely heavily on medical research focused on treatment breakthroughs. “Without funding, medical research is unable to progress. Without research, no cure can be found,” said Victoria.
