Leo the Lion

As many of you may be aware, our little bundle of joy Leo Alexander Hearn was born on the 22/11/2018. He was born true to his name "Leo the Lion" and fought his way through a complicated birth which resulted in Leo not breathing for 30 minutes post delivery and requiring extensive work to bring him back to life. Leo was very sick and we were unsure whether he would make it through the first night.

Leo then fought on to defeat all odds while being treated in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at Perth Children's Hospital. Leo was diagnosed with severe Cerebral Palsy, however, has continued to fight on and continue to progress with his development, much to the suprise of us all. Leo has become a very cute, cheeky little man that lights up the room and provides happiness to all that have been fortunate to meet him.

During the two months spent in NICU Leo spent the majority of the time on a ventilator. This was a difficult time for Leo, Jess, myself  and our families. Jess and I were extremely fortunate to be provided accomodation by the Ronald McDonald House located at the Perth Children's Hospital. The support provided was incredible and this ranged from the charity providing us with a room to stay in each night, providing cooking facilities, daily snacks, and importantly an endless supply of coffee!!

Without the kindness and generosity shown by the Ronald McDonald House, I am not sure how we would have made it through this difficult time.

It was during this time that we became aware of the "Up All Night" fundraising event. A 42km walk through Perth to raise much needed funds for this great charity.

Now it's our turn to repay the favour and get amongst the fundraising to help those who may be in need of the kindness and generosity we received.

Any donation towards this would be greatly appreciated!!!

If we can raise enough funds, I may even run the 42km ;)

Thanks in advance,

Greg 

I'll be Up All Night for sick kids

I’m taking part in Up All Night to raise funds for Ronald McDonald House Charities Western Australia (RMHCWA). Walking in an overnight marathon isn’t going to be easy, but it’s nothing compared to being the parent of a sick child.

Every day, families from across WA come to Perth so that their child can receive emergency medical treatment. Ronald McDonald House is their Home Away From Home during the most difficult time of their lives. 

I’m stepping up to show the families at Ronald McDonald House that they aren’t alone.

Join me on my journey. Donate to my page today.
