Christmas Appeal 2022

They say raising a child takes a village. But what if, at just three-weeks-old, your precious newborn is diagnosed with an incurable genetic illness with no known cure? And, what if, your whole family and vital chain of support lives on the other side of the world?

That was the devastating reality for new parents, Natalie and Grady, who welcomed their precious newborn, Teddy, right in the middle of the pandemic. To add to their heartbreak, Natalie and Grady were devastated to learn that there is currently no known cure for this insidious condition.

The new parents were given essential education on how to keep Teddy physically fit and healthy. While practical support such as a nebuliser to administer inhaled antibiotics helped make life easier for this family, Natalie and Grady are also extremely grateful for the financial subsidies provided for hospital parking and activities that encourage physical activity to keep Teddy's airways clear.

By the time you read this, Teddy will have celebrated his second birthday. I’m thrilled to tell you that he met one set of grandparents aged 12 months, and the other set aged 14 months. It was an emotional, sweet reunion for the family separated for the critical first year of his life.

We simply can't provide this support to families without you.  By donating today, your kindness will reach children like Teddy who must undergo intense medication and gruelling physiotherapy every day to keep their airways clear and help them breathe.
