Evie’s Christmas Wish List

Our 2017 Christmas campaign is an urgent appeal for three essential pieces of medical equipment – Cardiac Monitors, Radiant Infant Warmers and Critical Care Ventilators.

Ventilators help critically ill children breathe – they literally keep them alive. Cardiac Monitors record our little patients’ heart rate. The Radiant Infant Warmers provide a high-tech, healing environment for babies in our Intensive Care Unit. Equipment that helps our most vulnerable little patients thrive and heal. Patients like beautiful little Evie…

Gorgeous little Evie Groves, pictured here, came to us this time last year when she was just 6-months old. Her mum, Lorraine, had become worried about her.

“I knew there was something seriously wrong with Evie. But I never expected to hear the words I did on that terrible day.”

Evie had a large tumour in her brain and a series of smaller tumours on the back of her head. It was such a worrying time for her loving family.

Little Evie is one of thousands of children who benefited from critical care equipment – key life-saving machines and monitors that are absolutely necessary for children who are seriously ill or recovering from surgery. These life-preserving pieces of equipment keep watch on their tiny hearts, their breathing and other vital signs.

As Evie and her family went through setbacks and hope Lorraine was reminded time and again of the vital role medical equipment plays.

“When Evie was at her lowest, two things were keeping hope alive. The wonderful circle of love and care she received around the clock from the amazing nurses and doctors. But every day, I could see that technology was keeping her alive also. And making her stronger. I believe every parent’s child deserves the same chance.”

This festive season, will you help the many fragile children who will depend on these precious machines for their life and health? With your support, Temple Street can continue to bring hope and healing to sick children and their families.
