Hi, my name is Paris Panetta, and this is my story.
15 years ago a humidicrib assisted with my survival.
I was the second smallest baby born in Australia, at 28 weeks gestation, weighing a tiny 410 grams at the Royal North Shore Hospital. For 3 months that I was in hospital, 2.5 months of those I was in a humidicrib.
After 15 years, I met with my Neonatologist Dr Martin Kluckow again and I was so happy to finally speak to the person who helped save my life, amongst other medical staff at the Royal North Shore Hospital.
The humidicrib kept me warm and protected, greatly increasing my chance of survival.
I’m incredibly grateful that I was lucky enough to have this equipment available for me so now I want to give back.
My goal is to raise $26,000 via donations to buy a humidicrib through the Humpty Dumpty Foundation, for a hospital in desperate need of one.
In order to achieve my goal, it would be greatly appreciated if you could please spread the word by sharing my page and video with your family and friends.
If you’d like to help me, you can make a donation by clicking on the “Give Now” button.
Thank you in advance for your generosity, you have no idea how much this means to me to have your support.
The Humpty Dumpty Foundation has been providing support for children's services since 1996. Humpty buys essential and often life-saving medical equipment for Neonatal Units (Newborn Care) and Paediatric Wards (toddlers and children to 16 years) in hospitals and health service centres across Australia.
Humpty Dumpty is now supporting over 380 hospitals and health service centres across Australia.
We would all like to believe that our hospitals have all the necessary equipment they need to look after our children in an emergency, but put simply, they don’t.
The Humpty Dumpty Foundation is a charity that helps the most vulnerable people in our community: our children.
