Home Who we are News 24 August 2016 In the community A Thor-tastic visit to the hospital This Christmas, you can help sick kids get through their treatment and support the Children’s Hospital Foundation by purchasing Supporter Beads for just $5 from your local ALH Group venue. Bridget had already survived an aggressive cancer once, but at six years of age she was back in hospital fighting leukaemia a second time, facing many months of chemotherapy and more invasive treatments. In hospital, children like Bridget are awarded special Bravery Beads that recognise their courage and strength as they fight for their lives. For Bridget, her string of Bravery Beads is over 12 metres long, providing her with a tangible way to share her story. For a limited time you can purchase special Supporter Beads to tell your own story to friends and family, about how you are helping Queensland’s sickest kids. Through purchasing these special beads, you will help to fund life-saving medical research, invest in vital new equipment, and provide entertainment, family support and care programs for sick kids. Supporter Beads are available for purchase for $5 at your local ALH Group venue. All proceeds will go towards the ALH Group 2016 Kids Christmas Appeal. Purchase your special Supporter Beads before Sunday 29 January to help sick kids laugh and smile, get better and go home sooner.
