Today’s post comes to us from GLOBALHealthPR Australia Partner, VIVA! Communications.
An inspiring group is helping rural Australian families overcome the ‘tyranny of distance’ and expensive treatment costs for children living with life-threatening and chronic illnesses.
This year, Little Wings will coordinate over 300 flights for children and their families, enabling them to access treatments at three major, Sydney-based hospitals. For parents who struggle to balance work and travel times often lasting over 12 hours, this relieves a significant economic burden.
“Being taken care of by Little Wings has just changed our lives dramatically,” said Mick Knowles, father to a little boy living with the life-threatening Hunter Syndrome and a quadriplegic daughter.
