How your support has made a difference

Thanks to your support, Mater is able to continue to care for more than 500 000 patients every year. If it weren’t for generous supporters like you, we simply wouldn’t be able to provide care for every person who walks through our doors.

So how does your donation support seriously ill and premature babies, women, men and young adults? Here are just some of the remarkable stories from patients and their families of how your support can make a real difference.

I tried to think about other people and what they go through—I just had to knuckle down and try and do the same. I’m here and I’m choosing my battle.
