Gwen’s 1st Birthday!

By Amanda Ruddock

We’ve decided to celebrate Gwen’s 1st Birthday with the Royal and raise funds for the RBWH NICU.

Gwen was born at 27.5 weeks, weighing in at a tiny 568g (1lb 4oz). She spent her first 95 days in the Royal Brisbane Women’s Hospital, Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. We have been so incredibly fortunate to get here and it wouldn’t be without the expertise and support of the wonderful team of doctors and nurses at the RBWH NICU. 

We have the greatest gift of all, Gwen. To celebrate her first birthday, please consider donating to our page. All money donated goes directly to the NICU. It will assist in funding medical research and life saving equipment to help other parents and future parents of premature and sick babies reach their child’s first birthday.

All donations over $2 are tax deductible and you will be issued with a tax-deductible receipt via email as soon as you make your donation.

Thank you for your generosity and support.

Jordan, Amanda and Gwen. xxx
