Welcome to little wings

    LOGAN

    Introducing baby Logan, he has just turned one and travels all the way from Canberra to access specialist treatment that is only available at @sydneykids_.

    Logan has complex needs, of which have placed huge demands on his little body as he undergoes surgery, constant testing and invasive treatment. At times, Logan is travelling on a fortnightly basis, his gorgeous mum by his side on every journey.

    But today, he is stronger, more alert and more comfortable than ever before. His smile commanding the room without fail!

    Logan’s mum, Katie, tells us that ‘Little Wings help us so much and in so many ways... the journey, the pram, advocating for us... but my favourite thing of all, the way you treat my Logan and accept him for the special person that he is. Thank you!’

     

     

    VAYLEN

    7-months old and all the way from Narrabri. Today, he travels with his tribe of supporters, including big sister, Lily.

    Vaylen’s mum, Tori, told us that ‘it makes such a difference when we can all come together. The process is daunting enough but being together, receiving the information together, tag teaming the care of Vaylan and making sure that he feels supported throughout the entire process... that is priceless to us.

     

    CATHERINE

    7-months old and a local in Griffith, NSW. Her family are originally from Vanuatu, grateful that they migrated because the medical care available saved Catherine’s life.

    Catherine was born with congenital heart disease. She required open heart surgery hours after her birth. Luckily, she has been able to access such treatment, and on going care, at @westmeadkids.

    Catherine will require treatment and life-long monitoring and intervention, but for now she is happy and thriving, a very cool customer in the air!
