Today Eva proudly joined with many other premature babies and children to walk to raise awareness of premature births. Eva was joined by her Daddy and Nanny to journey 5km around Albert Park Lake with about 1000 other walkers. I sat and rested and watched the world go by while they walked.
It was amazing to see lots of tiny babies there with their parents who have obviously recently been discharged. The money raised today will go towards supporting parents as they face the journey with premature and sick babies. They are refurbishing a parent’s room at one of the Melbourne Hospitals and buying more comfortable kangaroo care chairs for multiple hospitals.
