"My mum had 10 kids. She raised all of us on her own. We always had a roof over our head and food on the table. I never realised until I got older, that woman would go to work all night, then come home in time to get us ready for school, every day. No matter how many times I messed up, she would always welcome me home with open arms. She’s done an amazing job at being a mum and being a human. She’s the rock of the family."

On Thursday, TPCH farewelled long-standing theatre nurse and much-loved colleague, Gladys, who has dedicated 30 years of service to the hospital. 🥰

Gladys began training as a nurse in 1968 at the age of 17 at Mt Isa Base Hospital, and is one of Queensland's longest serving Indigenous registered nurses.

Her 55-year nursing career has spanned many locations - Mt Isa, Brisbane, Darwin, Alice Springs, Melbourne, Sydney, Perth, London, and Singapore.

"It's like family here at the hospital. I never lost my love of feeding people. I would come at 6am on the weekends when I wasn't working and set the table up with foods like chicken wings, spaghetti and fruit, so they can come down and eat when they could," Gladys said.

"If you give from the heart, it will always come back to you. 💜

"I call it the beloved Prince Charles. I truly loved it. I love the people, the old and young ones. It was lovely to be able to teach. There is respect and everyone enjoyed this place."

#ShoutoutSaturday👏 to Gladys, thank you for your care and congratulations on your retirement.

Melanie has a special connection to TPCH, after being born with a congenital heart condition called pulmonary valve stenosis where she was then cared for by the team there her entire life.

Now, she works at TPCH as a clinical cardiac scientist and research fellow through The Common Good, where she dedicates her time to finding new drug treatments to save the lives of those with heart failure. 🫀

Melanie's research work sees her collecting tissue samples to test different drugs to see if they can treat heart arrhythmias.

"The hope is to increase the rate of screening of new medicine used in heart failure to rapidly
progress from bench to bedside," Melanie said.

"Growing up with a heart condition myself has definitely sparked an interest in learning about hearts and helping people that way." ♥️
