With your ongoing support and generosity, Gold Coast Hospital Foundation was able to help 95,009 people in the Gold Coast community and further afield during the 2016-2017 financial year.
Read all about this incredible impact made possible thanks to overwhelming community donations in our 2016-2017 Annual Report.
In July 2015 Gold Coast Hospital Foundation took over management and funding of a dedicated transport service for local cancer patients (previously known as Monique’s Bus).
With three new buses on the road, five days per week, since commencing this vital service has helped relieve the financial and emotional distress associated with regular treatment, travel and parking worries for more than 970 individual patients. One patient who regularly uses the service, Lisa (pictured), said:
“I couldn’t have got through my treatment without the transport service. I don’t know what else to say. I have no idea what I would do if the bus didn’t exist.”
On behalf of the patients who cannot afford parking and travel costs and/or have no one to drive them to appointments, we thank you for helping fund this service through donations and sponsorships.
