I'm fundraising for The Royal Hospital for Women Foundation

Our baby boy Joe was born 9 weeks early at the Royal Hospital for Women and was looked after so well by the doctors and nurses of the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). Despite all the incredible care Joe received, a combination of his prematurity as well as a heart condition was too much for him and he passed away after 5 weeks and 1 day of fighting so bravely.

To show our gratitude for the love and care shown to Joe, my wife Jayne and 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.


Thanks Mike, Jayne & Joe
