Gold Coast cancer patient’s heartfelt plea – help fund vital transport service for local patients in need
Carla Mills was just 38 when her doctor delivered the devastating news – ‘you have cancer’. Diagnosed with triple negative breast cancer – one of the most aggressive and fastest growing cancers – Carla’s life quickly became a blur of gruelling treatment and surgeries.
“My whole world was torn from under me and my life changed in an instant,” Carla recalls.
As a community organisation, Gold Coast Hospital Foundation raises funds to reduce medical hardship for local patients like Carla. One of the ways we do this is by helping cancer patients get to and from hospital for treatment, tests and appointments.
Our Cancer Patient Transport Service provides crucial support for more than 2,000 local cancer patients every year who are too sick to drive, can’t rely on family or friends to assist them, or simply struggle to afford taxis and public transport.
Your support is needed now more than ever, with the cost to keep our fleet of three dedicated vehicles on the road five days a week exceeding $280,000 per year.
Please donate today and help fund our vital Cancer Patient Transport Service.
Your generous donation will help reduce some of the stress of being unwell for local cancer patients by helping them get to and from hospital, often daily for weeks at a time.
