2016 Australia's Local Hero (ACT) Newborn care champion
After enduring the tragic loss of his baby daughter, and soon after his wife, Peter Cursley responded to his personal heartbreak by dedicating his life to helping others. In 1995, he established the Newborn Intensive Care Foundation and has since raised more than $4 million for the Canberra Hospital and its Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). Through Peter's hard work and dedication, vital equipment – from breast pumps and recliner chairs for nursing mums to state-of-the-art medical equipment – has been purchased. The Foundation also contributes to nurse education and training to ensure staff remain at the cutting-edge of neonatal care. NICU cares for around 700 babies each year, with 40 per cent coming from New South Wales. Combining his retirement jobs with his voluntary work as chairman of the Foundation, Peter’s motto, “life should not be a struggle when you are a few hours old” has driven the Foundation’s agenda for two decades. Peter’s never-ending generosity makes life better for so many babies and families.
