My target 500kms
I'm fundraising for The Royal Hospital for Women Foundation
I have started to raise funds for The Royal Hospital for Women Foundation to support the Madison Capaldi Research Fund (MCRF)
The MCRF was established by Danielle and Joe Capaldi, my sister and brother in law in memory of their baby twin daughter Madison who passed away eight weeks after being born prematurely and developing a disease called Necrotising Entercolitis (NEC). Unfortunately Madison’s premature birth meant she was at a greater risk as the incidence of NEC is inversely proportional to birthweight and most common in babies that are less than 1000 g in weight.
I cannot begin to say how proud I am of Danielle, Joe and their children, Charlotte (Madison’s twin sister) my niece and Noah my nephew for their dedication and relentless hard work in fundraising activities for the MCRF and the research that has been enabled due to the existence of the fund.
The MCRF since established, has raised close to $500,000.00 as a direct result of the tireless efforts of the MCRF members and generosity from the continual supporters that do not hesitate to contribute to this fantastic cause time and time again.
The MCRF is committed to raising vital finds and awareness into NEC while this year the goal is to raise enough funds to purchase a ‘Babyleo Incubator’ which will help provide premature and critically ill babies the best chance of a healthy future. The incubator is extremely advanced and provides an environment similar to an operating theatre allowing for emergency procedures to be undertaken in the Newborn Intensive Care Unit reducing the risk of the baby becoming unstable or developing complications while being transported. This is the next best thing to a mother’s womb.
The Kokoda trek is more than just a trek it’s an opportunity to experience albeit on a reduced level, the physical and emotional demands that our diggers faced in significantly more challenging circumstances. This will be the toughest challenge I will embark on this year and one I’m extremely looking forward to.
Any contribution would be truly appreciated and help us achieve the goal in purchasing a ‘Babyleo Incubator’.
