Palliative Care Queensland

Sarah is an 18 month old girl who lives with her mother, father and two older brothers on a very remote property in the Flinders Shire. One day when Sarah’s mum was giving her a bath she had
a prolonged seizure. Sarah’s mother and oldest brother used the satellite phone to call the Royal Flying Doctors Service (RFDS) to manage the seizure using the medical chest on their property. Following admission to the Townsville University Hospital and transfer to Queensland Children’s Hospital, Sarah is living with inoperable,
malignant brain tumours.
