Little Poppy was born with defects in her lungs and unable to breath by herself. She was taken to Sweden for care without her parents and hooked up to an “ECMO” Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) life support machine.
Poppy has responded amazingly to the ECMO, but it is still early days and she must have surgery before returning home to Ballymun, Dublin.
This is any new mother and father’s worst nightmare to have their newborn go through such a traumatic experience. There has been so much stress and worry for the new little family, however all prayers and love through social media has been absolutely amazing and they are extremely grateful and thankful.
The next few months won’t be easy, little Poppy is going to need constant care and will be attending hospital for a long time. Her parent’s friends are trying to raise some funds for Princess Poppy and her family through these tough times.
They are looking for raise €5,000 and they need your help – a donation of any size would be incredibly welcome by the family. You can make that donation here.
