I've created this page because I want to make a difference. I was to give back to Ronald McDonald House Newcastle because they gave our family so much.
When Justin and I had our first child Allie we were excited just like any other first time parents. Imagining what life is going to be with our new baby at home.
When Allie was born, we didn’t know straight away but something wasn’t quite right. As the first days unfolded more and more didn’t seem ok, until eventually Allie stopped breathing while she was breastfeeding.
When Allie went limp in my arms my world went into a spin and didn’t stop for a long while.
Allie was rushed to NICU at John Hunter Hospital and so were we. Ronald McDonald House was there to catch us. To stay onsite at hospital, dinner cooked for you more then once a week and a comfy private room. Ronald McDonald House were a God send!
In the 6 weeks we stayed at Ronald McDonald House we were supported. All the ups and downs Allie went through in NICU. All the uncertainty when they couldn’t find out what was wrong with her....Ronald McDonald House was there supporting us. We couldn’t have got through this time without them!
Now fast forward 5.5years...Allie is healthy, has started school, and is a vivacious, kind, active young girl. Now it is my time to GIVE BACK!
I will be running my first ever Marathon this July 22nd at the Hunter Valley Winery Run. That’s 42.2km of Running (and so much more in training) to try and give something back to Ronald McDonald House Newcastle cos they gave so much to Justin and I.
Please help me help them by giving whatever you can using the 'Give Now' button. The more people Ronald McDonald House Northern NSW, the greater their impact, so please also spread the word by sharing my page with your friends and family. Thank you in advance for your generosity, it means a lot!
