Meet Bellah, her mum Cassie, and her Meema Sue. 

Bellah was just 3 years old when her appendix burst and she slipped into toxic shock. She was in desperate need of the specialised pediatric care that only a larger hospital that was hours away could give her. Our RACQ LifeFlight Rescue crew was called to get her there quickly and safely. 

Bellah survived the flight, but it was touch and go. After several operations and 16 weeks in hospital, she recovered well and is now a happy and active 11-year-old, with a keen interest in our helicopters that continue to fly over her house. Her mum, Cassie, has no doubt her daughter is alive today because of the crew and the helicopter that airlifted them to Brisbane that night.

You never know when a loved one may need us – whether its family today or in the future. Bellah’s beloved paternal grandmother, Sue, had been supporting LifeFlight for many years before her precious granddaughter was even born - collecting bears and making donations. She knew the service was important to her community but never imagined in a million years her own granddaughter would one day be depending on us to save her life.  

Please donate by 30 June to support our lifesaving service across Queensland – now, and for generations to come.
