Carl's In-Home Nursing
The Royal Children’s Hospital in Melbourne offers an in-home nursing service to assist families of children with complex and chronic medical care needs to be cared for at home with their family.
This is a paid service and between January and July 2011 alone we funded $9,990 worth of nursing care for IGAB kids – including $700 for 2 year old ‘Carl’ while he battles a brain tumour.
Carl isn’t this little boy’s real name but the family has asked us to use an alias for privacy reasons – something we are always happy to do for our families.
We are able to provide this much needed support, for some very special families, through the generosity of some of our grant providers, including: Australian Unity, Grosvenor Foundation and Australian Ethical Super & Investment – as well as your General Donations – so keep them coming!
