This Christmas… help us give hope.
Our research at Children’s Medical Research Institute helps children born decades later to live happy, fulfilling lives.
One of those children is Erin Hutchison – born at just 25 ½ weeks and weighing a mere 597 grams, she was given a five per cent chance of survival.
“Erin’s specialists credited CMRI with some of the treatments we went through,” Erin’s dad Dean said.
They helped pioneer neonatal intensive care units – a key element in the improved survival of premature babies like Erin; they helped introduce the principles of newborn care; and conducted cardio-pulmonary studies in newborns.
“Without CMRI I wouldn’t have Erin, it’s as simple as that.”
