Meet Bonnie who is enjoying her 1st walk with her son after 96 days in NICU

On 10th October 2021 me and Amy Denny completed our lockdown marathon challenge and raised over $5,000 for the RMFM in memory of Grace Sinnott.  

On the 29th May I will be attempting the Everest Marathon after a 10 day hike to base camp. The further fund raising is to celebrate the birth and health of Alexander or ATG (Alexander The Great) as I like to call him.  

Alexander’s mum, Bonnie was just 23 weeks pregnant when she was admitted to hospital with some unexpected pregnancy complications, she held on for 2 weeks and her son Alexander was eventually born on the 14th December 2022 after cooking for just 25 weeks and 2 days. He spent 96 days finishing growing and developing in the NICU and special care nursery at the Royal Hospital for Women before being discharged under their hospital in the home program.

Alexander has been home for 5 weeks now and is thriving. He weighs 4kg, huge growth from his birth weight of just 856g, is feeding well and definitely keeping mum and dad on their toes. Alexander’s amazing achievement has only been possible due to the incredible care, knowledge and passion from the entire team at The Royal. 

This is something to celebrate and I want to raise as much money as possible to assist the Royal with the fantastic work that they do and to thank them for the support they have given to two of my closest friends Aine and Bonnie.   

The MFM unit provides a complete multidisciplinary service to women with complex pregnancies, providing continuity of care from diagnosis, through pregnancy, birth and the early newborn time.
