Description RH Charity Cruise 2008 Canberra Hospital NICU

This Charity Cruise is to help raise money for the Canberra Hospital’s Newborn intensive care unit.

Please come along, Every baby deserves a fighting chance. the NICU helps these babies, they also need our help.

For parents like our close friends Matt and Lisa Opie who have had to go through the hard times of seeing their premature and sick babies fight for their lives.

Lisa Opie as an example has had 3 miscarriages in the past 3 years trying to have her and her husband Matthew Opie's second child.

In Feb 2008 Lisa fell pregnant for the 4th time, More than ever Lisa and Matt wanted to have this baby, and get through the nine months of pregnancy with little to no complications .

Everything was going according to plan until Sunday 28/6/2008 when things started to head

down hill as it did with her last 3 pregnancies, Lisa was admitted into The Canberra Hospital straight away and the doctors were able to prolong her pregnancy and she was kept in the hospital under close monitoring until the 23/08/08 when their 2nd baby girl was born, MYLIE FAITH OPIE.

With the fast and experienced staff of the NICU, they took Mylie and gave her the assistance she needed. She was 14 weeks premature, and had a 50% chance of survival as she was not developed enough to handle the world outside of her mothers womb without assistance.

Thanks to the NICU Mylie was given a real chance of survival, with at least one of their qualified Nurses and Doctors at Mylies side 24/7 on constant breathing systems, and other life supporting and monitoring machines.

Mylie is now 6 weeks old growing, putting on weight and becoming a stronger little girl every single day. She now weighs 1135 grams and a little shorter then 30cm in length.

Without the support of the Canberra Hospital and the NICU, Sadly Mylie and other premature babies just like her would have had no chance of survival.

At the cost of approximately $2000 per baby, per day in an incubator they need our support to fund these costs, to help sick and premature babies survive in our world. We would like you to come and show your support and appreciation and join in this fundraiser for the Canberra Hospital's NICU (Newborn Intensive Care Unit). This special place in our hospital not only helps parents and their babies in Canberra but all of Canberra's surrounding areas.

When: Sunday 16th November.
