Mason’s 1st Birthday

By Danielle Bombardieri

We’ve created this page because we wanted to give back and make Mason’s 1st Birthday count.

As most of you know our beautiful little Mason has faced some hard challenges over the past 12 months. While nobody ever wants to see their child in hospital, we could not be more thrilled to have Mason looked after by the amazing team at the Royal Children’s Hospital in Melbourne. 

From giving us access to some of the world’s leading specialists; to answering every call and email we send (sometimes at all hours of the evening); sending some ‘angels’ to clean our house and allow us to sleep; and being relentless in their pursuit for answers; we absolutely would not have survived the past year without the support of the RCH. 

So we are asking all our friends and family to please donate to this year’s Good Friday Appeal, in lieu of gifts for Mason’s 1st Birthday (22 May). 

It is our view that all children and families should be entitled to the world-class care the RCH provides, but without the generosity of the public it is not possible.  

All donations no matter the size will make a big difference to so many families and it will also mean a lot to us. 

Thank you for your support!  

Thank you to my Supporters
