Micro-Preemie Emilia Needs your help!!!

Micro-Preemie Emilia Needs your help!!!

Personal message

Emilia-Rose is a micro preemie who lost her mother just after she was born. Every cent will go to her to cover her medical bills.

Little Emilia was brought into the world at 27 weeks gestation as only months before her seemingly healthy mum, Tara, found out she had Hodgkin's lymphoma.

Tara was studying to be a preschool teacher and loved and looked after children in her spare time. Tara battled it out with the rapidly spreading disease for 2 months, mainly alone in hospital due to CoVID19 restrictions. Unfortunately, Tara's condition declined so quickly the doctors could not help her and the call was made to deliver Emilia and let her fight for her life.

Tara passed away 2 weeks later, without ever having met her baby girl. Her father, Ross, is now supporting Emilia alone and is updating his family on her progress, which included heart surgery to correct her murmur.

This little girl has born to survive, she goes from strength to strength and deserves the best medical care to ensure she has the support she needs. PLEASE help me to take this enormous financial pressure from Ross while he tries his best to become a new father and still hasn't had the chance to hold his baby girl yet.

Emilia is already at 31 weeks gestation and continues to amaze us with her will to live.

Emilia's father will be able to focus on meeting her needs and being a great dad.

All funds will go directly to Emilia's medical costs. She is going to need to be in NICU until Feb 2021 and this is not fully covered by medical aid.
