Ellie, a Senior Constable with Queensland Police Service, was driving home from work when her life changed forever. She was hit by a four-wheel-drive and suffered a range of serious injuries, including two brain haemorrhages. She needed emergency treatment in Brisbane. And the fastest, safest way of getting her there was RACQ LifeFlight Rescue.

In responding to such serious emergencies, nothing can be left to chance. Please will you donate now, so the team will always be ready to save the lives of Queenslanders like Ellie?
