Meet Sonny — a lad struck down by serious injury at home on a remote NT cattle station, far from medical aid.

His injury threatened to change his life forever.

"Out here, when any serious accident or illness strikes, you have just one single thought: the Royal Flying Doctor Service," Amber, Sonny's mum said.

It was crucial for Sonny to receive urgent, expert care. Every second counted as he was airlifted to Alice Springs Hospital for emergency surgery.
