AMA Queensland Foundation Christmas Appeal
Success! Your request has been sent and a representative will be in contact soon.
The AMA Queensland Foundation is proudly supporting Juiced TV for this year’s Christmas Appeal with the aim to raise $25,000 for a new, high-end, broadcast quality camera.
Juiced TV is an Australian-first program that provides the opportunity for patients and their siblings to star in their own show and share their hospital journey in an empowering and positive way, creating and connecting a community of hospital heroes.
A hospital stay can be overwhelming, lonely, and even boring at times. Juiced TV understand that the best possible health care for kids includes initiatives that benefit their social and mental wellbeing, so their mission is to create meaningful and memorable experiences with patients, their families and their hospital community. Since its launch in 2015, the organisation has made a difference to the lives of thousands of patients and their families.
This year, we want to give Juiced TV the best Christmas present, a brand new camera, so they can continue to grow their initiative and bring a smile to the faces of more children in hospital and their families.
How your donation will make a difference:
When Mackenziee Lawler was six months old, she was diagnosed with spastic diplegia, a form of cerebral palsy that causes chronic tightness and stiffness in the lower parts of the body.
Over the last ten years, she has undergone just under 50 major procedures and surgeries. Juiced TV provides multiple touch points along a child’s ongoing health journey, helping create a safe, positive healing environment.
Working with the Juiced team has helped Mackenziee gain a sense of control over her hospital journey. From interviewing Aladdin to hosting the Gold Coast Kids Colour Fun Festival and even flying down to Sydney to interview the cast of Pitch Perfect 3, Mackenzie has taken on the world, one step at a time.
“Juiced TV was a massive part of my recovery. I think without them, I would have been a very different person. They definitely took me out of the darkest places in my life and changed my whole perspective around what hospital stays could be. They showed me hospital stays could be fun and enjoyable, with a little bit of laughter and lights, camera, action.”
