Our Current Appeal
“To save Lochie’s life, we knew we had to get there – fast.”
– CareFlight Dr Alex Doig
It started out as a typical Father’s Day for the O’Fee family when Lochie started complaining of a headache. The next moment, he was screaming, clutching his head and losing consciousness.
Our crew raced to Lochie’s side and observed that he was vomiting and struggling to breathe – he was in real trouble. CareFlight’s Doctor Alex intubated and stabilised him. Within minutes, the CareFlight helicopter had raced him to hospital, where our inflight critical assessment was confirmed – Lochie had suffered a burst aneurysm in his brain.
“Thank you for doing everything you could to keep me alive.”
– Lochie, CareFlight patient
It is only because of your generosity that Lochie is still with us today and had the chance to reunite with Dr Alex and the crew who saved his life. You are making the most precious gift: keeping families together, safe and sound.
Will you continue to put your support behind CareFlight with a gift today, so that we can help Australian families, just like yours?
Will you help our crews save lives whenever we are called, with a life-saving gift this tax time?
