Xaviers 1st Birthday

By Nicole Carey

Raising Funds

We hope you can join us to celebrate Xavier's first year of life! ❤

In lieu of presents, we are fundraising for The Women's and Children's Foundation because as you know Xavier didn't have a normal start to life. On day 2 doctors discovered he had a heart murmur and a weak femoral pulse in his legs. After being taken away for some testing we were told that Xavier would have to stay in the Special Care Baby Unit (SCBU) at Women's and Children's Hospital (WCH) under 24 hour monitoring for a congenital heart condition.

We were faced with the real possibility that Xavier's Aorta (main vessel in his heart) would narrow so much that it wouldn't allow blood to flow, resulting in an emergency flight to Melbourne for heart surgery.

Thankfully that didn't come to fruition and we were able to go home after 1 week. He did later have heart surgery at the Royal Children's Hospital in Melbourne at 5 weeks of age.

We are so thankful for the love and care we received at both hospitals and that's why we want to give back! During our time (particularly in WCH) we saw how much more they need! The staff are run off their feet, the equipment is outdated and unfortunately government funding only goes so far.. Therefore, by making a small donation for Xavier's birthday (or donating newborn clothing), together we can positively impact the health and wellbeing of women, children, and their families at the Women’s and Children’s Hospital.
