Andrew was taking a break from working with the sheep on his 76,000-acre station. The next moment he suffered indescribable chest pain.

Kaye saw her husband covered in sweat and gasping from the pain. As a former nurse, she knew he needed urgent help - he was having a heart attack.

When accidents happen, isolation can put families living remotely at risk - they are twice as likely to die from, or be hospitalised for, an injury.

Families like Andrew and Kaye must count on the Royal Flying Doctor Service.

Your gift can ensure people like Andrew have access to critical emergency care when their life is at stake.
