Wings4Kidz provides a free flight service for children in regional communities, who have serious or life threatening illnesses and are required to travel to major city based hospitals for treatment.
Making a positive impact
We live in Bangalow in regional NSW with our three daughters Harper 7yrs, Sadie 5yrs and our very special newest addition Charlie who is now 11months old.
Charlie's care is extremely complicated requiring ongoing reviews from paediatric neurosurgeons, endocrinologists, Opthalmologist's, ENT surgeons, radiologists and audiologists. Due to the rareness of these congenital problems all of these specialists are in Sydney where her care can be coordinated.
We were advised to contact Wings4kids through Charlie's therapist from the Royal Institute of Deaf and Blind Children and although we have only had the privilege of using this service once it has made all the difference.
Simply knowing that there are people willing and able to help us with the logistics of travelling to and from our many hospitals stays and appointments means we can spend more time as a family caring for Charlie during times of extreme stress for us all.
As a regional family the value of such a service can not be measured Phoebe Rose
