Helping Tiny People Fight Big Battles

Because of people like you, in less than six months we have raised an incredible £300,000 for the Here for You Appeal. 

The neonatal intensive care unit cares for around 600 of the most premature and critically ill babies in Wales. The Tiny Lives campaign will fund desperately needed ventilators, incubators, and transport incubators.

Last July, we re-launched a new phase of the Tiny Lives Appeal, with the aim of raising £300,000 to fund three transport incubators, four ventilators, and eight incubators for the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU).
Thanks to supporters like you, funds raised from Jamie Robert’s testimonial year, and the dedicated fundraising of countless NICU families like baby Marty’s, we’ve hit that target – less than six months on!
 
Helping to celebrate this brilliant news is baby Marnie and her parents, Morgan and Phoebe. Marnie was rushed to the neonatal intensive care unit after being born with a life-threatening congenital birth disorder called gastroschisis. After eight surgeries, four months on NICU and a further four on Owl ward, Marnie finally got to go home.
Phoebe says: “Marnie was born five weeks early in a critical condition. She was put on a ventilator and taken as an emergency to the NICU in Cardiff in a transport incubator. Once she arrived, Marnie was put in an incubator. Over the following weeks, that incubator kept her warm and safe so that she could grow and recover from surgery while a ventilator breathed for her when she was too weak to herself.
 
“We’re so delighted that the neonatal intensive care unit now has more of these vital pieces of equipment. They’re so much more than machines – they’re life-savers!”
 

This has been made possible by people like you, thank you.
