why we need your support Zahli, age 4 In Australia, child health has come a long way – but we still have a long way to go. On cystic fibrosis average every day, five Australian babies and children die. One hundred years ago, children were dying from gastroenteritis, diarrhoea, influenza and other conditions that thankfully today are often easily treatable. There are more ways to help sick and injured children get better, faster – we just need to find them. Today’s children face an unprecedented crisis. Due to lifestyle diseases and obesity this may be the first generation with an expected life span shorter than that of their parents. All Australian children should have the best possible health care available. With help from the community and business, Children’s Hospital Foundations Australia can help more sick and injured children and their families. We need to raise the funds to enable children to have the best possible chance of recovery through improved treatments and cures.
