Hi! Thanks for visiting our fundraising page.

As you know, our gorgeous boy Ryder was born at 29 weeks, 4 years ago, and needed some love and attention during his first 10 weeks in hospital. It was by far one of the hardest periods for us. He was 1.5kg, which apparently was 'big' compared to some of the other bubs in the NICU. Having never experienced this before we didn't know what to expect. I'm so thankful for charities like Life's Little Treasures Foundation and Miracle Babies for their support.

They provided information, packs with cute little knitted beanies, some material hearts to keep inside your shirt so you could then put it in the Humidicrib with your baby so they could smell you when you weren't able to have hugs.

The three of us are doing the Walk for Prems on 22nd October - the day after Nadia's birthday (when we'd usually be out for drinks!), because we want to give back to the charity that was so supportive when we were going through this really hard time. Thank you so much for your donation!

Life’s Little Treasures Foundation provides much needed programs and services to vulnerable families with premature and/or sick babies, just like ours. Donations to this amazing charity helps with items such as Precious Prem Packs and guide books for families in hospital.
