Mater Stories

The generosity of our supporters has helped save and improve the lives of thousands of patients in the Mater Hospital. The inspiring stories of both the patient and our supporters, often at times of incredible difficulty, are why we’re here, always striving to better care in their time of need

Mater Foundation Stories

There are over 315,000 patient visits in the Mater Hospital each year, and for every one of those patients, there’s a story. At the Mater Foundation, we are privileged to get to meet some of these people – some who have undergone heart and lung transplants, others who have survived cancer, families who have been screened and saved from inherited cardiac conditions, and others fighting serious illnesses in clinical trials.

Every one of these people has an inspiring story to be told, and most often, it is you – our supporters – that have helped them to lead a happier and healthier life because of the treatment and care they’ve received in the Mater Hospital.

Take a look below to read patient stories and also those of our supporters, who have gone the extra mile – and in some cases much further – to make a real and lasting difference to patients and their families in the hospital.
