The Government will support lifesaving research into new treatments and cures for childhood life threatening diseases with a $2 million contribution to the annual Channel Nine Queensland telethon, which raises money for the Children’s Hospital Foundation. This will enable research into children’s diseases such as brain cancer, respiratory diseases, infectious diseases, Indigenous health research and paediatric intensive care. Money raised will also be used to provide equipment, resources, care and entertainment for sick children and their families in Queensland hospitals.
