Cairns parents give thanks for supporting little battler Jaiden Herd

 Cairns parents give thanks for supporting little battler Jaiden Herd.  Born 12 weeks early and weighing just 890 grams, life was always going to be an uphill battle for Jaiden Herd.   But a month after he was born, things got even tougher for him and first-time parents Lisa and Mick Herd of Mount Sheridan.  Diagnosed with necrotizing enterocolitis, where parts of the bowel tissue die, the tiny battler was given a five per cent chance of survival as he entered his first round of surgery.  “It was very, very touch and go,” Lisa recalls.

“The vital funds contributed by Goodyear Tyres have enabled us to work with and support many more families, and ultimately improve the long-term outcomes for vulnerable babies who are born premature or sick,”

For Sarah, good things come in small packages

good-things-come-in-small-packagesA WODONGA mother feared the unknown when her second son arrived into the world about 10 weeks early. The first seven weeks were “scary” for Sarah Sheridan — who spent the time in hospital while tiny Orlando lay hooked up to machines and had his weight closely monitored. “It was a scary time, because the survival rate in the early stages is quite low,” she said yesterday.

The ordeal prompted Mrs Sheridan to do something to help other families who find themselves in the same predicament. She rallied her friends and family to take part in a walk for Life’s Little Treasures, a foundation raising money to support the families of premature and sick babies.
