Hi, my name is Kelly and I'm 9 years old. I have been with GPH under Aunty Pat Seymour since I was in preschool. They have helped with my medical issues as my mum and dad didn't have any funding left after paying for all my medication.
I was having issues with my eyes and I was walking into poles as I couldn't see what was in front of me. I have been wearing glasses since I was 3 years old. My eyes were getting worse and I was losing my vision in my left eye and I had to see an eye specialist in Sydney.
I had to have a eye operation in May 2017 and now I have gained vision in my eye and I can see. I still have regular appointments in Sydney for my eyes with the specialist. If it wasn't for GPH I wouldn't be where I am today with my eyes.
GPH have helped me not just for my eyes but with my other medical specialist appointments as well.


Hi, my name is Jodie and I have a 9 year old daughter that has been with GPH for about 6 years and have had help and support from Aunty Pat Seymour.
GPH have been amazing with all the help and support that they have given to us as a family. My daughter has needed to see many different doctors and specialists.
My daughter has had glasses since she was 3 years old and her vision in her left eye wasn't good as she was nearly blind in that eye and she was depending a lot on her right eye to see all the time and her head was always to the side so she could see out of her right eye.


We have had many visits to Sydney to see the childrens eye specialist and GPH have been there to help and support my daughter for her appointments.
My daughter had an eye operation in May 2017 and has gained vision in her left eye, we have regular eye specialist appointments to monitor her vision closely. GPH have been absolutely amazing if it wasn't for their support and help, my daughter would be completely blind in her left eye. My daughter has other medical issues too and GPH is there to help and support my daughter always.
