Nurses Face Fear of Heights to Support Lymphoma Patients

A passionate group of nurses from Fiona Stanley Hospital will face their fear of heights by abseiling 40-storeys to raise money for Lymphoma Australia

The team from Ward 7D will descend down WA's highest building, the QV1 on Saturday 13 April.

Clinical Nurse Educator Annita House said "the group was aiming to raise $10,000  in support of Lymphoma Australia."

"Taking on this challenge will help to ensure specialist Lymphoma care nurses are available wherever they are needed,” Annita said.

“This is an organisation close to our hearts and we wanted to do our bit to raise awareness while also challenging ourselves.”

The Fiona Stanley Team have already fundraised over $2500 and over the next few weeks, will host a fundraising bake sale and sausage sizzle to help raise money.  If you would like to support this caring group of nurses you can make a donation online to help them reach their target

Lymphoma Australia is touched to see such a display of support from the nurses at Fiona Stanley Hospital. We wish the team well and think they are very daring taking on the 40 story abseil. We look forward to sharing an update and photos from the day.
