BEADS Auxiliary

Supporting the Rheumatology Unit at the RCH.

Area: Various suburbs in Melbourne and Gippsland area

The story so far

BEADS (Beat Every Autoimmune Disease Successfully) Auxiliary was established in 2012 by a small group of people committed to raising awareness and combating the effects of autoimmune diseases like arthritis and thyroiditis.

Our aim is to raise funds for much needed research and also support the Rheumatology Department at the RCH.

Funds raised so far have been mainly through donations from our contacts and networks.  We greatly appreciate their support.

What we are working on

Currently, funds raised are mainly through sales of RCH tote bags and from direct donations for research at the RCH.
