The Redcliffe Hospital Giving Day is a chance to support the doctors, nurses, and staff who provide excellent care every day. Your donation will directly help the facility improve equipment, resources, and services for local patients. Funds raised on Giving Day will go towards bringing new and cutting-edge technology to the hospital. 

Redcliffe Hospital Giving Day is the flagship event for Raise it for Redcliffe Hospital, a joint effort between the RBWH Foundation and Redcliffe Hospital to raise funds. On this special day, all donations to Redcliffe Hospital will be matched by Giving Day Impact Partners, doubling the impact of each contribution.

Far more than a hospital, Redcliffe is the heartbeat of the entire Moreton Bay region. Its caring staff have guided countless babies into the world, healed families in their times of greatest need, and walked hand-in-hand with patients facing the unknown.

For local nurse Kerbi Davis, who is now a Nurse Manager at the hospital, Redcliffe was her rock and refuge. After 10 years at the hospital she considered family, Ms Davis was diagnosed with breast cancer at only 28. 

Throughout her treatment, the staff supported her with a kindness she will never forget. And miraculously, just months after finishing chemotherapy, she found out she was pregnant.

When it came time to decide where to deliver her baby, there was really only one option that made sense to her – Redcliffe Hospital. She had complete confidence that the hospital’s staff and facilities would provide the best possible birthing experience for her and her baby.

She chose Metro North Health, the public health district that includes Redcliffe, as her provider network.

According to Ms Davis, being diagnosed with cancer at such a young age meant fertility was a huge worry. She considered it miraculous that she was able to conceive naturally despite her condition.

Ms Davis was met with yet another miracle when her baby Finn was only 3 months old – a clear PET scan showing no cancer recurrence.

With her second chance cradled in her arms, it was only natural Ms Davis returned to Redcliffe for care as she stepped into motherhood. The hospital was right by her side, welcoming the new life they had helped save.

This Giving Day, Ms Davis urges the community to give as Redcliffe gave to her – with generosity, compassion, and dedication. Your donation will help the hospital continue providing its life-changing care, whilst expressing your gratitude.
