Seven-month-old Samuel has a rare congenital lung malformation and just before Christmas he had an operation at The Children’s Hospital at Westmead over 7 hours away from his Coonamble home.
While Samuel recovered, with thanks to Heartfelt Homes donors, we were able to provide accommodation for Sam’s mum and dad at 175 Hotels and Apartments, 300 metres away from the hospital. Without this support, the family would have been separated causing further distress to both Sam and his parents.
Samuel recovered amazingly from his surgery but unfortunately his lung started to collapse when they were on their way home from the operation and the family only made it as far as Bathurst before Sam had to be airlifted back to Westmead.
THANK YOU to our donors from Samuel and his mum and dad for helping them stay together during this time of medical crisis, and THANK YOU from Heartfelt Homes.
We’re sending all our love and healing vibes to this little legend and his beautiful family at a time they need it the most, please will you do the same?
