We are the family of Sinead and Alex, parents to beautiful little Edward ("Teddy"). Teddy is an adorable, cheeky, and courageous 10-week-old baby who has had an extraordinary start to life.
Since birth, Teddy has been through many triumphs and has proven time after time how strong and brave he is. The Perth and Melbourne cardiology team expect that Teddy has a rare and complex form of cardiomyopathy which up until recently, was being monitored in Western Australia.
After a very scary and unexpected turn of events involving Teddy being in critical condition at Perth Children's Hospital on an ECMO machine, Teddy is now in search of a new heart. With the help of St John of God Ambulance Paramedic Team, Newborn and Paediatrict Emergency Transort Services, the amazing staff at Perth Children's Hospital, and the five doctors and nurses from Royal Children's Hospital Melbourne, Teddy has been transferred to Melbourne to start his heart transplant journey.
Alex and Sinead have had to recently relocate from Busselton, Western Australia, to Melbourne on an indefinite basis, so Teddy can receive the specialised care he needs.
This sudden move means that Sinead and Alex have had to urgently step away from work and face many unexpected costs in their endeavour to fight for Teddy.
With Teddy's parent's blessings, they have allowed us to set up this Go-Fund-Me page to try and raise funds to support Alex and Sinead as they relocate, fund living expenses and finance any excess medical costs for Teddy.
All thoughts, prayers, and well wishes are most welcome, and donations of any amount are incredibly appreciated to support Alex, Sinead and Teddy during this challenging and stressful time.
Much love x
