Young Brodie Hunter received a new tablet computer from the Ark Toy and Activity Centre Auxiliary to help him pass the time whilst he receives dialysis treatment at East Grampians Health Service.
Ark Toy and Activity Centre Auxiliary President Mrs. Kaye Chaming said “The Auxiliary was more than willing to help Brodie, when we found out that every Wednesday he receives Dialysis treatment for up to 5 hours at a time. The Auxiliary wanted to give Brodie a helping hand and help make use of his time whilst receiving treatment at East Grampians Health Service; and the tablet computer seemed the best idea.”
Brodie Hunter said “I am wrapped to be given this tablet computer to use while I’m in hospital receiving dialysis treatment which can be a really long day. I would like to thank the Ark Toy and Activity Centre Auxiliary for allowing me to use this tablet computer and making my time in hospital much easier.”
East Grampians Health Service Community Liaison Officer Mr. Danny Drake said “Brodie has battled a lifetime of problems with his kidneys, where he has had numerous operations and still has to manage his kidney condition as part of his everyday life.”
Mr. Drake said “Brodie has a great spirit about him and a terrific attitude to life, and on behalf of the Health Service, and I would like to thank the Auxiliary for donating a tablet computer which will make his time in hospital much easier. We are fortunate to have such thoughtful and generous community minded people in Ararat, such as the Ark Toy and Activity Centre Auxiliary.”
