The Prince Charles Hospital Foundation

The Prince Charles Hospital Foundation (TPCHF) was formed in 1986 with the primary goal of funding critical research at The Prince Charles Hospital. Today TPCHF has become a major research funding body focusing on the areas of heart, lung, dementia, arthritis among others. We’re proud to support The Prince Charles Hospital which is one of the world’s leading heart and lung hospitals.

The Common Good

An initiative of The Prince Charles Hospital Foundation, The Common Good is a team of businesses and individuals who are joining forces with researches to tackle disease that face us all. By directly supporting researchers, we can channel our resources into the medical conditions we care about. The Common Good is here to prove that everyday people can make things happen.

Team: Team Wade

 

In 2017 'Team Wade' was created by our dear friend, Lisa. It quickly grew into an amazing team of friends and family wanting to support the Common Good. Team Wade were the highest fundraising team of 2017. This was a reflection of the incredible, humbling and selfless support that Wade and I have received during the most difficult time of our lives. Wade received a heart transplant in November 2016 and is only alive today due to a combination of the research done at the Common Good, the outstanding services and staff at the Prince Charles Hospital and the generous gift of a donor organ. 2018 has been a year of ups and downs for Wade but in the words of his cardiac specialist his new heart is 'Immaculate'. But our journey doesn't end here. Wade will be in the care of PCH for a lifetime and we have no guarantees. We need research to continue to ensure Wade lives a long and quality life. So join us! And if not, any donation is extremely appreciated.

This year, my team is taking part in the bike ride for Cycle of Giving, to raise funds for organ transplant research and awareness for organ donation.

At any one time, there are about 1500 Australians waiting for an organ or tissue donation to save their lives. Without medical research finding better ways to source, match and transplant organs, this list is only going to get bigger. The money we raise for the 2016 Cycle of Giving will go towards key research organ transplant projects at The Prince Charles Hospital.

Just $44 funds one hour of important medical research. Our goal is to power at least 5 hours’ worth of research funds.
