The Gift of Health at TerryWhite Chemmart

Andrew Hewkin is internationally renowned as one of the great surrealist artists of our time. With works commissioned by celebrities such as Michael Caine, Peter Ustinov, HRH Princess Margaret and Brian May from Queen.

But in the midst of his successful career, Andrew discovered he was suffering a life-threatening liver disease and turned to the doctors at The Prince Charles Hospital to save his life.

Luckily for Andrew, Dr Tony Rahman was able to provide the treatment that gave him a second chance at life.

Originally from the UK, Dr Tony Rahman is now a heading leading gastroenterology at The Prince Charles Hospital. Supported by The Common Good, Dr Rahman is championing research into rare liver disease, bowel cancers, coeliac disease and associated treatments. This year alone they have identified over 2,000 patients who were at risk of developing bowel cancer who have now been treated.

In gratitude of the work Dr Rahman did to save his life, and in honour of the second chance he has been given Andrew Hewkin has generously donated an image of one of his classic paintings “Heart in Hand” to The Common Good. Andrew has shared this image to help raise money for life-changing medical research, in the hopes that more lives will be saved by the discoveries made by teams like Dr Rahman’s.

The image will be distributed on a specially designed Greeting card, available exclusively through TerryWhite Chemmart this festive season.

Our friends at TerryWhite Chemmart have made these cards available to all customers for a small donation of $2 each, with all proceeds being passed on to The Common Good to improve health outcomes and patient quality of life.

Andrew and TerryWhite Chemmart hope you will give the gift of health this festive season by purchasing a Greeting card in store at TerryWhite Chemmart from the 1st of December.
