In Loving Memory of Henry

By Elissa Heather

Raising funds for The Royal Hospital for Women's Newborn Intensive Care Unit

Our journey to NICU started at Royal Hospital for Women when I was transfered to their care on the 10/09/2019 after 5 weeks of pregnancy complications. 

My son Henry Darcy was born by emergency c section on the 15/9/2019 at 24 weeks + 4 days old. He weighed 610gm and measured 32cm long. He was perfect in every way. My partner Giles and I were warned that he would have a huge fight in the months ahead. Newborns at his gestation would have an average stay in the NICU around 100+ days.

Henry's home for the next 27 days would be in the Newborn Intensive Care Unit at the Royal Hospital for Women in Randwick. Unfortunetely Henry lost his life due to complications with chronic lung disease after a long brave fight. 

My hat goes off to the doctors and nurses that worked around the clock and provided one on one support to ensure that Henry had the best medical treatment and care in a supportive and compassionate environment. I cannot thank them enough.

This cause means so much to my partner Giles and I. We thought about it after Henry passed how we could give back to the wonderful hospital and give thanks for the outstanding medical treatment and assistance our son recieved while he was in their care in the Newborn Care Centre.

Our lives are affected forever and a piece of the NICU journey will remain in our hearts in the years to come. We were amazed to hear that 70% of the funds recieved to purchase incubators and equipment used to keep Henry alive are due to fundraising efforts and from donations.

We will always be grateful to the Babyleo TN500 incubator for looking after Henry and keeping him warm and safe for the first few weeks of his life. Caring for a premature baby can cost anywhere between $3,500 to $10,000 a day in our hospitals.

Therefore I request in lieu of flowers and gifts please consider giving and supporting this cause to raise funds for the The Royal Hospital for Women's Newborn Intensive Care Unit for new machines and anything else the unit requires to keep other newborn babies like Henry alive. If other families can walk out of NICU with their babies and take them home using the latest technology and medical equipment then it willl be all worth it.

In loving memory of Henry Darcy Brown. You were and always will be, a much loved little boy, Henry. Your mum n dad were totally besotted by and devoted to you in every imagineable way and in turn, you fought to survive with every fibre of your very being. Regularly following your progress little one, we couldnt wait to meet you and for the day mum and dad could finally take you home, tubes, needles, humidicribs etc, free. It seems baby Henry, the universe had even greater plans for you and you were taken unfairly, far too soon. However, Henry, your impact has been far reaching; we will ensure your memory lives on in chats with your mum and dad and when we look up into a night sky, we will be sure to spot the brightest star and know that it is you Henry Darcy. So very much love from (unoffocial) Aunty Kirst and Uncle Mart
