SARAH Murdoch has moved from super model to mother concerned with the health of her children -- and thousands of others. Using her modelling and motherhood experience, Mrs Murdoch has become the face and name of a new awareness cam- paign launched last week to support the Murdoch Children's Research Institute. She says she supports medical research because she understands that the medi- cations, treatments and preventative measures we take for granted today, are thanks to important discoveries of the past. Mrs Murdoch has been the ambassador of the institute since 2000. Her husband Lachlan's grandmother Dame Elisabeth Murdoch established the institute in 1986. It is the largest child health research institute in Australia. Its team of 1000 researchers is focussed on finding cures for conditions such as obesity, cancer, asthma, diabetes, allergies and premature birth. Ms Murdoch hopes her involvement will encourage other Australian's to support the important work of the institute. ''My wish is that we all have a greater appreciation for research and how it can make a real difference to our lives," she said. Institute researchers work alongside the doctors and nurses and with patients in the Royal Children's Hospital in Melbourne. News Ltd, publisher of the Inner-West Weekly, is a major sponsor of the campaign. To find out more visit www.childcarerebate.gov.au or call the Family Assistance Office on 13 61 50.
