Shoppers from the Sunshine Coast and the surrounding area can help make a difference for local sick and injured kids like Beerwah local Ethan when they do their grocery shopping this August, as Woolworths and the Children’s Hospital Foundation once again join forces for their annual Regional Wall Token appeal.
Ethan and his twin brother Harrison were born premature at 27 weeks; at eight days old, Harrison passed away. Ethan spent a total of 256 days in hospital and was diagnosed with severe neonatal chronic lung disease requiring respiratory support.
Shoppers can help Ethan and children like him by adding a $2 wall token to their grocery shop from August 21 to September 10. All money raised through local Woolworths supermarkets will help the Children’s Hospital Foundation support the Sunshine Coast University Hospital via Wishlist.
In 2018, the appeal allowed Wishlist to fund several pieces of life-saving equipment including a Video Laryngoscope for the Neonatal Unit at the Sunshine Coast University Hospital and important glucose-monitoring equipment for children with Type 1 Diabetes.
