#TPCH thoracic physician Professor Kwun Fong knows how important early-stage lung cancer detection is. That's why he's joined Australian Cancer Research Foundation in announcing a new mobile lung cancer research facility, which will visit regional and remote areas to assist in early diagnosis of lung cancer. 🚚

“Early-stage lung cancer can generally be cured by surgery and modern radiation therapy, but unfortunately most lung cancers are typically diagnosed at an advanced stage where curative treatments are not able to be offered. With lung cancer screening technology accessible to all, we can save lives,” Professor Fong said. 👏

“Before I was diagnosed with cancer in January, I was studying marketing, I always figured it would pay well and there was lots of work. But going through this experience has really put things into perspective. Money doesn’t bring you happiness and all I really want is to be happy. I met a social worker during my treatment who inspired me to study social work instead. Now I just want to help people and make myself and other people happy.”

For the love of food! 🍎 Nicole's worked in food services for almost 20 years, and since 2017 has been bringing warm meals and comforting cuppas to patients at #Redcliffe Hospital. Despite wearing a mask, Nicole's smile is appreciated by every patient she walks past. 🏥

"Delivering meals, taking up coffee and restocking tea stations around the facility means I see a lot of patients in a day, sometimes the same people, you get to know them quite a bit," she said.

"I take pride in getting stuck in and getting the work done, but if I can do it and put a smile on a patient's face at the same time, that's when I know I've provided a great service to them during their hospital stay."

Falls are one of the main causes of disability in the elderly. Losing mobility, balance and confidence can have a detrimental affect on an individual's physical and mental health. That's why senior physiotherapist Louise, who runs classes at the Caboolture Community Health Centre, is passionate about getting patients feeling strong and balanced again. 💪 #ShoutoutSaturday

"Falls can occur for many reasons, it could simply be loss of balance, tripping over something, muscle weakness or a medical condition," she said.

"Some elderly people don't recover from falls, they might break a hip that never gets better and suddenly they're immobilised - it's very important for those ageing to stay active, even if it's just a walk or some stretches at home, to minimise their risk of a fall later in life."

Baby Dustin was born at #Caboolture Hospital on Wednesday just before 7 pm - and so far mum Aleea says he's been very well behaved! 🥰

"Dustin is my second boy, I'm not sure if my eldest will be jealous or not yet but I am sure they'll grow up to be best friends," Aleea said.

I mean, who wouldn't want to be friends with this little guy? ❤️ #FeelgoodFriday
