Testimonials

Thank you for your presentation at the New England Regional HACC Forum, Held in Tamworth. The HACC services at the forum were informed and inspired by the story of The Friendly Faces Helping Hands Foundation. HACC services in the New England area are acutely aware of the need for information which the Foundation provides as rural services supporting people in health crises, and as rural residences themselves.

-- Ellen Gallagher and Deb Pugh

I just want to say how truly grateful and appreciative I am for the support I received in finding travel and accommodation when having appointments with Specialists in Sydney for my son.

It is quite stressful when you have no idea where to find accommodation , which is handy to Hospitals and Specialists, also which is suitable accommodation and reasonably priced.

Home-grown innovation born from adversity.

Kelly Foran’s strength, perseverance and initiative are remarkable. The Maules Creek mother-of-two has overcome life-threatening adversity on several counts, from her own brain tumor and relapses to her son’s cancer.

She has blossomed on the other side with an inspirational and innovative vision to help others.

Kelly’s new website, Friendly Faces Helping Hands, does just that.

I have had the pleasure of listening to Kelly Foran’s presentation on the Friendly Faces Helping Hands Foundation several times at Ladies Health Information Days around the region. Her story and subsequent development of the Foundation, so that she can help others to minimise their distress is an inspiration. I have myself used the website to provide information to clients who have had to utilise hospital services in the city. The information and support that the Foundation provides is invaluable.
