$500 Raised for Zaidee’s Rainbow Foundation


GOTAFE’s Nursing trainer Allison Derooy presented $500 raised from 2017 Regional Health Student Conference to Allen Turner, cofounder of Zaidee’s Rainbow Foundation.

Allen Turner was a guest speaker at the event getting the word out about how important it is to have the discussion about being an organ donor. Allen’s Daughter, Zaidee was just seven years old when she passed away suddenly from a brain aneurism. Zaidee passed away in December 2004 and was the only child in Victoria under the age of 16 years to donate her organs and tissues that year.

The foundation is aimed at both Adults and Children to inspire them to think about becoming organ donors too.

Start the discussion and help save more lives.
