Deliveries of our #nutritiousnibbles have been made this week by our elves.
The closer to Christmas we get, the more nervous our long term families get... Will we be home for Christmas or will baby’s first Christmas be spent behind the doors of the NICU?
We know there are places you’d rather be so we’re bringing Christmas cheer all festive season. Special thanks to @secondbiteorg for sharing special treats 💜

Again so proud to be part of a study that will hopefully help discover if a vaccine impacts the prevalence of food allergies in children • today I was sad to discover out of the 150 people needed they are only sitting at 58 • I get it we, are getting our babies to undergo blood tests that is not apart of the “normal vaccine routine” • but modern medicine didn’t come out of thin air; it’s through studies and trials that they develop new better safer ways of doing things • I like to think Hudson will impact the future of vaccine and food allergies and that’s pretty special • another lovely thing that happened today was Hudson met a lovely young boy named Liam who was 13 but the developmental age of two, his mum was so lovely and kind, they were also up in the research department! 🦸🏼♂️LIAM you are making a difference and you don’t even know it #notallsuperheroeswearcapes 🦸🏼♂️• if anyone is interested in seeing if they can support the children of the future in this study or one any other, contact your local children’s hospital and as for there Research department 💜
What an incredible opportunity to have a piece written about our Oliver, and his/our appreciation for a donated insulin pump ❤️ #diabadasstoddler#insulinpumptherapy#perthchildrenshospital
WILL YOU SUPPORT ME?? This Saturday night I'm stepping up for sick kids and walking an overnight marathon for Ronald McDonald House Charities WA. I'll be taking on a huge 42km walk with hundreds of others, and you can support me without breaking a sweat, or leaving your sofa! Donate here to make a huge difference https://www.upallnight.org.au/fundraisers/hayleythorburn/up-all-night
I'm so grateful for @perthchildrenshospital and the treatment we get because Nash was born with a Cleft lip and palette.
Except for days like today, I find it hard to be grateful. When you drive two hours for a 20 second dental appointment, then wait an hour for ENT only to be told there is no audiologist on, which means the ENT appointment was pretty much a waste of time.
Just lucky we have the most amazing ENT specialist ever, he was less than impressed that the appointments weren't made properly either and I had to drive all that way.
Atleast the kids had a bit of fun climbing on all the cool things at the hospital
These are pics of my little Ocean taken this past September. In my day to day reality, true Hero’s can be found in abundance at Perth Children’s Hospital.... and every kids hospital world-wide for that matter. These little people are so big on determination, resilience and inner strength, despite their circumstances. I have soooooo much admiration for these mighty little warriors - no matter the heaviest of storms it’s so humbling to see them still smile. The amount of valuable life-lessons we as adults can actually learn from challenged kids is astounding. Thanks to all those amazing kids who inspire me daily.
One in five children in Western Australia has a respiratory disease. It's the leading cause of hospitalisation for children under the age of four.
Here at the Foundation, we are doing everything we can to help children breathe easier. Funding critical research and specialised training, building the expertise of hospital teams alongside the provision of life-saving equipment and finding better ways to support the mental health of children with serious respiratory disease is hugely important.
Your generosity this festive season will be dedicated to making a difference to the lives of children with serious respiratory disease. Help children breathe easier this Christmas! 🎄

G is for Gratitude.
I am so very grateful that we live in Australia. A country with excellent health care. Some of you may not know that our son was born with club foot (fixed talipes). This is a birth defect that occurs in about 1 in 1000 children (mostly boys) so isn't all that uncommon, but seemingly not well known about either. It is called club foot because the feet are turned in like golf clubs. This little guys feet were so bad that his toes were touching his ankles! Thanks to the amazing specialists at Princess Margaret Hospital (Now, Perth Children's Hospital) our son could walk, jump and run just as though he had never had the problem! Unfortunately even with a pretty successful result from the ponseti method, this little guys stubborn feet kept on tightening up and doing their own thing, so we've had two surgeries, and found out today he will need to have one more next year. Although I do wish he didn't have to endure another surgery that leaves him in a wheelchair for a while, I am so so thankful that we have that option. And that this defect Is temporary and can be fixed! We count our blessings every single day that we have 4 very healthy children and that of all the things that can go wrong, this is the largest health concern we have had. Something so treatable. And I mean, look at this little guys face... he knows what's coming and he just takes it in his tippy toed stride. What a trooper! I'm so proud of him and his beautifully brave and positive attitude 💙

Today our Director Jonathan Clover had the great pleasure of meeting Rebecca Johnson, CEO of the #type1diabetesfamilycentre here in Perth. Bec was diagnosed with Type 1 when she was 17. Not only has she risen to the incredible challenge of thriving with this commonly misunderstood disease, she has been an inspiration, support and strong advocate for others who suffer with #Type1Diabetes .
The work that Bec and her team are doing is amazing and we are so excited to announce that First National Real Estate Genesis are committing as sponsors and will be making a donation from each sale made by Jonathan for the foreseeable future so that those suffering from #Type1 can have a better future!
It was a year ago in December Jonathan and his wife rushed to PMH (now Perth Children’s Hospital) with their 5yr old little boy Moses after being told by the family GP that he was at risk of slipping into a diabetic coma (BGL of 44 for those who speak the language). They knew nothing about Type 1 Diabetes! What was it? Why did he have it? How do we deal with it? “My wife and I thank God daily that we live in a time with treatment and education to effectively manage this relentless disease. We have learned so much in a year, so much more to learn still!” Thank You #perthchildrenshospital#ndss#diabeteswa#jdrf and the #type1diabetesfamilycentre for all the support you provide!
