Thanks to you…we did it!
Thanks to your donations to Flinders Foundation’s Christmas Appeal a new ECMO machine will soon arrive at Flinders
Thanks to your donations to Flinders Foundation’s Christmas Appeal – and a generous gift-match from the Volunteer Service of Flinders Medical Centre - a new ECMO machine with the latest technology will soon arrive at Flinders!
Do you remember the story about Patricia in our recent Christmas appeal? She had to be revived four times after suffering a pulmonary embolism.
It was only thanks to the ECMO machine that doctors and nurses at Flinders were able to save her life.
And now, thanks to your support – and a generous gift-match from the Volunteer Service of Flinders Medical Centre - a new ECMO machine with the latest technology will help save more lives of people with heart and lung problems.
“If it wasn’t for that machine, I wouldn’t be here. I stake my life on that”
said Patricia in an emotional interview with her daughters.
This is why your support means so much.
Simply put, you’re saving lives.
The new ECMO machine is equipped with the latest technology. It’s compact and can be transported easily
in an ambulance or even a helicopter, something which wasn’t easily possible with the old machine.
We were also delighted with your response to the Christmas bauble! We received over 100 beautiful messages for patients spending Christmas in hospital which brought a smile to everyone who passed the tree.
It’s only with your support that Flinders Foundation can provide vital equipment like this to Flinders Medical Centre.
And, it’s never too late to give! Your next donation could help fund a brand-new piece of equipment or research that will save lives.
