You know what it's like when you go
looking for an item and something
altogether unexpected turns up?
Something that you have wanted
to find for some time, or else a
welcome surprise you didn't know
existed until that moment?
It can be a lot like that in medical
research. That's why scientists at
the Children's Medical Research
Institute undertake basic research

They're not always looking for
anything in particular -- they're open
to making surprising discoveries.
The more they learn, the greater the
possibility of uncovering potential
treatments for the diseases which
currently have no cure.
The institution, which celebrated its
50th birthday in 2008, has been
responsible for such breakthroughs.

The CMRI has also led the way in
pioneering microsurgery and is
responsible for the introduction of
Rubella injections to prevent the
birth defects caused when pregnant
women get German measles.
CMRI's focus has changed over the
years and now much of its work
involves learning about the basic
processes that take place in our
bodies and the building blocks of life.
Ironically, the more that researchers
at CMRI learn about the body, the
more specific and targeted the
medical response will be. And with
it, fewer medications will be needed
for people to lead healthy, long lives.
To maintain its excellent research
results, the CMRI needs funding
from the public, much of which
comes from its popular Jeans for
Genes Day and individual bequests.

According to Legacy President Jim
Parkins, services are "needed and
appreciated just as much today as
they ever were".
"While some things have changed,
the cost of providing services has
risen significantly, due in part to our
decreasing volunteer base and the
fact our funding is not government-
based," he explained.
"Widows still seek our advice on
a range of matters and Legacy is
pleased to be able to deliver the
necessary emotional and financial
support to those in need."
Legacy provides assistance and
advice on matters such as pensions,
accommodation and general welfare
and provides grants, loans and
practical assistance to those in need.
