“As a Mum of three healthy children, I’ve made several trips to the hospital with a sick or injured child. When your children are being treated, it’s easy to take for granted that the doctors and nurses will know what to do. Each day the team of world class scientists at Murdoch Children's are working hard to find cures for diseases that affect our children like cancer and diabetes along with conditions on the rise in our country such as allergies and obesity.”
