Inspired by Head Coach Rob’s son, Anthony Kastoun AKA ‘’Little Lion’’’, who was born on 15 January 2016, 14 weeks earlier than his expected due date, and weighing just over 900g.

The reality is that Anthony is just one in ten premature births. Many spending their first few months of life in a 4×4 incubator attached to more wires than one will ever see in their life.

So it is our pledge to ‘give’ to the tiniest fighters our world has by raising funds to help purchase life-saving equipment. Our first goal, is to raise enough money to donate a full humidity crib.

Last year we raised: $13738.55

Our goal this year is to reach: $25,000

You can contribute in any of the following ways:

– Participate in the Games Day, entry is by donation, teams of 3 (RXD and Scaled)

– Plus more fun and games to be revealed…

Or simply go to the fundraising page to make a donation:

Clare Classic 2018

April 6th, 2018

Dr Lee cycles for health in wine valley ride

WSLHD’s former Director of Supportive and Palliative Medicine, Dr Phillip Lee will compete in the 2018 Clare Classic this weekend to fundraise for the Westmead Medical Research Foundation (WMRF).

Dr Lee will be heading south to take part in the event on Sunday 8 April and ride through the picturesque Clare Valley, near Adelaide.

Dr Lee has already raised his target of $700 but is hoping for more donations to go towards the work of WMRF.

As someone who has seen first-hand how generous donors make a difference through their fundraising efforts, Dr Lee knows that small things in hospital wards like a new couch, a new paint job or nice curtains can make patients feel more comfortable.

“They improve the environment for families experiencing difficult time,” Dr Lee said.


Dr Philip Lee

“It is not just about looking after the patients, it’s about caring for the families to help them through their not so easy journey.

“Donor generosity leads to better patient care because the staff are just overwhelmed by that support and it gives them really good feedback about the job they’re doing.

“In the long run patient care actually improves from the high levels that it’s at already.”

WMRF head of development Joe Conneely is grateful to have fundraisers committed to the Foundation’s mission of supporting the delivery of medical research and patient care.

“Without the incredible generosity of fundraisers like Dr Lee, we would be unable to achieve these extra support measures in our wards for the patients,” Mr Conneely said.

“Westmead Hospital has more than 330,000 people who are admitted annually and has just under 1.5 million people as outpatients, so it’s easy to say that Westmead has an impact on everybody’s life here in Western Sydney,” Mr Conneely said.

“The kind support of our ongoing corporate donors allows us to assist the amazing staff with their medical research, patient care and the outpatient services for the community since 1990.”

Wearing green for a worthy cause

March 23rd, 2018

Recently, nearly 200 participants of all ages joined the 6th ‘Run 4 Jess’ and raised more than $1,300 for Westmead Hospital’s oncology ward.


2018 Run 4 Jess participants

The event took place at the Gipps Road Sporting Complex, Greystanes and despite the temperature on the day reaching over 35 degrees, it was a fun event with plenty of participants wearing green as the event coincided with St Patrick’s day.

Steve Clark, who has been a supporter of Westmead Medical Research Foundation (WMRF) since 2013 after his wife Jess passed away, was pleased to see family, friends and other participants supporting a great cause.

“Not all of us have the skills, bravery and tenacity required to be doctors, nurses and scientists. Fundraising gives us all a chance to support these valuable members of our community by giving them the resources they need to better help others,” Steve said.

Steve’s mum Lynette, has played a crucial role helping with the planning of the ongoing event and this year she made two ‘in kind’ gifts for Westmead Hospital. Lynette crocheted 11 hats for the premature babies taken care of at the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at Westmead and she handed them to NICU’s nurse unit manager John Whittaker at the recent event. She also donated a handmade quilt to The Crown Princess Mary Cancer Centre.

Pram runners

Crutches were not an obstacle for this participant!

Among the participants this year, there was a group of pram pushers running and a young lady who walked the 2km on crutches – a real effort.

WMRF says thank you to our fundraisers

December 12th, 2017

n Wednesday 6 December 2017, a group of enthusiastic and generous fundraisers who have been supporting the work of Westmead Medical Research Foundation (WMRF) over the years, got together at Acacia House for a recognition event. They were welcomed by the Foundation’s staff to enjoy a special occasion that was about thanking them and giving them the opportunity to meet fellow fundraisers and donors.

Stories and videos about the impact of donors’ generosity were shared during an evening that was filled with emotive memories of those different fundraising initiatives and donations that have made a big difference to the lives of patients, medical staff and researchers.

Attendees of the event also included Dr Philip Lee, former Director of Supportive and Palliative Care Medicine at Westmead & 2017 Parramatta Citizen of the Year; Dr Sally Greenaway, Director of Supportive and Palliative Care Medicine at Westmead; Donna Garland, Operations Director of Women’s & Newborn Health at Westmead; John Whittaker, Nurse Manager of the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at Westmead and Noeline Rozanc, Nurse Unit Manager at the Radiation Oncology at The Crown Princess Mary Cancer Centre (CPMCC).

Joe Conneely, Head of Development at WMRF, said that the fundraisers who attended the event are truly committed to the Foundation’s mission of supporting the delivery of medical research & patient care.

“Without their incredible generosity, we would be unable to achieve our results translated into support for a diverse range of Westmead Hospital areas and wards such as NICU, Palliative Care, Women’s & Newborn Health, Neurosurgery, Haematology; along with funds for heart disease research carried on at The Westmead Institute,” he said.

DOIG FAMILY – Annual Margi Doig Golf Day

 

Ben and Matt lost their mother Margie Doig who passed away at Westmead Hospital in Palliative Care under the care of Dr Philip Lee. Watch their video below!

From 2007 – 2015 the family hosted a Golf Day fundraiser in memory of their mother on her birthday, June 10. They had a fantastic network of family and friends that supported their fundraising initiative and raised approximately $120,000 over the years which was directed to Palliative Care.


Run 4 Jess 
 


Steve Clark was married to Jess Clark who passed away in 2013 in C5C Oncology ward. Steve and his family wanted to honour Jess’ memory by creating an event that showcased what Jess loved doing – sports and exercise. They have held five consecutive ‘Run 4 Jess’ fundraisers and raised over $20,000 to go towards C5C Oncology.

Dr Lee attended the fundraiser in March 2017 and they have already booked their date for 2018.

Lynette Clark is Steve’s mother and is the one who organises the fundraiser and helps him. Lynette is a member of the running club and has links to the Girraween Athletics Club.


Shave for Silas – Kyrra Cross

 

Earlier this year, Kyrra and her family generously organised an online fundraiser “Shave 4 Silas.” Thorugh this initiative, and with the amazing support of Kyrra’s sister – Larran and Silas’ godfather, Mani, they raised over $11,000 and donated to WMRF to support the work of Dr Dexter and his Neurosurgery team at Westmead Hospital.

Easy ride for Westmead Hospital patient and visitors, courtesy of two new buggies

December 1st, 2017

Westmead Hospital has upgraded its two patient and visitor transport buggies, courtesy of a generous donation from Arab Bank Australia, the George Naim Khattar Foundation and Holdmark Property Group.

The new buggies, which were co-sponsored by the organisations and donated courtesy of Westmead Medical Research Foundation (WMRF), replace the hospital’s well-loved “green machines” that have helped transport patients and visitors across its vast corridors for nearly a decade.

Operated by a group of friendly volunteer drivers, the buggies are available five days a week from the hospital’s main entrance to community members in need of mobility assistance.

The first buggy – dubbed the “green machine” for its bright-green paint job – was introduced in 2007, with support from Arab Bank Australia. But after nearly 10 years of constant use, the buggy fleet was in need of an upgrade.

Westmead Hospital acting general manager Sue-Anne Redmond, said the new buggies would be greatly appreciated by all users.

“It is a task getting around a big hospital like Westmead, and when you are unwell, it can feel almost impossible – that’s why the complimentary buggy system is so important,” she said.

 

“I know the hard-working volunteers who drive these buggies will greatly appreciate the new vehicles; it is thanks to them that patients and visitors with mobility difficulties can easily access the various wards, clinics and services within the hospital.”

Westmead Medical Research Foundation Head of Development Joe Conneely acknowledged the generosity of the organisations behind the new buggies.

“The dedication of these three organisations to help our community is sincerely appreciated,” he said. “Their support means we can continue to provide patients and visitors with this free service, which is part of our ongoing commitment towards our patients’ health and wellbeing.”

The buggy service was a finalist in the 2012 NSW Health Awards.

Perinatal Depression & Anxiety Awareness Week

November 15th, 2017

This week, 12 – 18 November, is Perinatal Anxiety Awareness Week.

Karen Hazell Raine – Clinical Lead State Wide Outreach Perinatal Service for Mental Health (SwOPS-mh), has kindly provided a blog for this awareness week.

 

Maternal and infant mental health

It’s Perinatal Depression and Anxiety Awareness Week 12 – 18 November 2017!

Why not just Postnatal Depression?

Advancements in research have led to new understanding, that the concept of ‘postnatal depression’ is now outdated. Approximately one in five women experience a mental health problem during pregnancy and/or during the first year after giving birth to a baby. The perinatal period refers to the time from conception, through pregnancy and the first postnatal year. Depression, anxiety, and a variety of other mental health problems are as common during pregnancy as the postnatal period. New research confirms that many women who experience depressive symptoms during the perinatal period, have previously experienced a mental health problem. Depressive and anxiety symptoms are very common throughout the perinatal period, but for most women, these symptoms are temporary and resolve when stress and worries reduce. For some women, just getting support to have a good sleep can resolve symptoms of depression and anxiety, but for others, a range of more serious mental health problems can emerge.

Myth busting

We all want to think about pregnancy and having a baby as a very happy and special time, however not all pregnancies are a planned, wanted, or uneventful. Childbirth has historically been known to be potentially dangerous, and parenting a newborn baby can be unexpectedly demanding. Physical, social, relationship and psychological changes inherent to pregnancy and parenting can pose ongoing challenging issues for families. Women who have previously experienced a mental health problem may be more vulnerable to relapse or recurrence of the condition during the hurly-burly of stress and change inherent to pregnancy and parenting a newborn.

Is there treatment and hope for perinatal mental health problems and illness?

Yes!

Our understanding and treatment for perinatal mental health problems and illnesses have improved rapidly over the past fifty years. For some women, adjusting medications or commencing new medications is essential, particularly for women who have ever experienced psychosis or who have an episode of psychosis for the first time, around the time of childbirth.

Perinatal mental health treatment is now community focused, aiming to care for pregnant women, mothers, and their babies at home with the support of their family and friends.

Research now confirms that old fashioned wisdom passed down from our grandmothers, is very good medicine for pregnant women and mothers. That is, a good healthy diet of fresh fruit, vegetables and homemade meals, quality sleep and regular exercise promotes mental health during the perinatal and early parenting period. Talking therapies are also excellent and can be as effective and maintain good outcomes for longer than medications. There are also very good, free, online treatments which women can take part in from the comfort of their own home.

Health Professionals throughout Australia now have access to guidelines focused on helping to identify women who may be at risk of developing mental health problems, with increasing understanding of the whole context for each woman. Check out this recent media article published on the Sydney Morning Herald over the weekend.

New guidelines recommend screening all pregnant women for perinatal depression.

Stigma and perinatal mental health problems

Although around 20 percent of women experience one or more mental health problems during the perinatal period, there is still a great deal of associated stigma.

Think for a moment about your own attitudes. Would you feel as comfortable talking with your family and going to see your GP or other Health Professional, about a possible mental health problem, as you would about possible diabetes, asthma, or other health problems?

We all can take part in shaping attitudes to mental health problems, starting with our own.  Although acknowledging and seeking help for mental health problems during pregnancy and parenting should be as comfortable for women as it would be for asthma or diabetes, some women fear that they will be judged negatively as a mother. These women are at risk of suffering alone with mental health problems and not getting adequate support to have a confident and comfortable relationship with their baby.

The good news!

The CARE Study, supported by WMRF, is focused on identifying, from early pregnancy, women who require additional support to develop a confident and comfortable relationship with their baby, and who might be prone to developing mental health problems.

Current research tells us that early Child Adult Relationship Experiences (CARE) shape the health, mental health, and development for the next generation of parents. The CARE Study is bringing to the field of perinatal mental health, a crucial focus on promoting and supporting positive early parent-infant relationships.
