I'm fundraising for The Royal Hospital for Women Foundation
In 2018, whilst on a work trip interstate and with no notice at all, I went into an early labour and suddenly and prematurely our son, our first child was born. We had just made it to the Royal Hospital for Women and were being registered as it happened. After what seemed forever, our little angel Ari Malik which translates to (Ari = Brave in Hebrew) and (Malik = Beautiful in Arabic) was born.
He was then immediately rushed to the ICU where he lived amongst all the other babies for 20 days. Those 20 days were the hardest days of his and our lives. We spent 20 days in a foreign place, only comforted by the fact that we had each other and the incredible hospital staff who made our lives that little bit better.
It was the most terrifying, sad and gut wrenching 3 weeks of my life as he lived out his days in ICU under the amazing team of doctors and nurses in the ICU unit. A team of professionals who watched over him and cared for him 24 hours a day 7 days a week. He was one lucky fella.
Unfortunately on June 26th 2018, Ari passed away due to premature birth related complications. Although he is no longer with us, we know he is no longer suffering and is at peace. We miss him every single day and wish we had the chance to see him grow into the brave beautiful boy he was.
I have started to raise much needed funds for The Royal Hospital for Women Foundation. You can join me and be part of this amazing journey. Every day at The Royal, a baby's life begins, a baby's life is saved, a woman's life is saved and new research creates miracles.
From our family to yours thank you for your kind support.
