Light up sick bubs’ lives

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Health -

EACH year, the ar­ray of beau­ti­ful Christ­mas lights on show through­out Perth gets big­ger and bet­ter.

The dis­plays are the end re­sult of a huge ef­fort by house­hold­ers, and some of the vi­su­als are noth­ing short of breath­tak­ing.

This year, you can make a dif­fer­ence to the lives of crit­i­cally ill ba­bies by vis­it­ing one of the beau­ti­ful light shows that have part­nered with the Perth Children’s Hospi­tal Foun­da­tion (PCHF).

This year, PCHF wants to pur­chase a much-needed New­born Emer­gency Trans­port Ser­vice (NETS) Am­bu­lance which will be used at the new Perth Children’s Hospi­tal.

Ev­ery year, ap­prox­i­mately 900 sick or pre-term ba­bies born in Western Aus­tralia need to be trans­ferred to hospi­tal for in­ten­sive care.

The cur­rent NETS am­bu­lance is six years old, and with a new one cost­ing $180,000, your do­na­tion can help fund a re­place­ment.

The full list of Christ­mas light dis­plays where you can do­nate is at right:
