Proud Dad Mikey got in touch with us while his son Oakley was being cared for on our Unit to let us know he’d like to be amazing and give back.
Oakely, who was born at 35 weeks after having lost his water at 24 weeks was cared for on our unit in May and June.
Oakley’s mummy and daddy were not given a good chance of him making it after his water was lost so early and his mum had contracted Group B Strep towards the end of the pregnancy. However, he fought on like a true preemie and even battled through NEC while being cared for on the unit.
After seeing the care his son received Mikey knew he wanted to help other families who would spend time on our unit and he’s very generously set up a Go Fund Me page to raise donations.
We cannot thank him enough for his kindness and compassion to our future families – we’re feeling very touched!
