Lily was just 14 months old when she was airlifted for an emergency appendectomy.

It only took 18 minutes for our crew to take off for their mission. The speed of their response made all the difference to saving Lily's life.

Please donate today to make sure our crews can continue to act quickly and keep families like Lily’s together during this holiday season.

If you’d prefer to donate over the phone, please call

Raising funds for @RACQ_LifeFlight's rescue helictoper has been a major challenge due to coronavirus restrictions. But today, local police officers were stopping residents on the street to help the rescue service. @hopemegwilson #7NEWS
