Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital seeks company support for Tiny Hearts campaign

Business, Charity | Tue 11 Dec | Author – Business & Finance

Could your company help us do whatever it takes this Christmas? Will you join parents, doctors, nurses, and scientists and step up to help sick children fight childhood illness?

CMRF is an independent foundation that raises vital funds for Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital, Crumlin and The National Children’s Research Centre to save and improve the lives of children who live with chronic and acute illness.

With up to 25,000 children acutely ill in Ireland, at any one time, these children require the medical care and treatment, to ensure they survive, thrive and live to their full potential. However, childhood illness in all its forms is persistent, indiscriminate, and often devastating. Quite simply it’s not a fair fight – childhood illness takes too much. Their innocence, their smiles, their precious family moments and sadly, at times – their lives.

Essential medical treatment for those born with acute illnesses

Of the 5,000 babies born over the next month, 100 will need our help to fight and survive. Some of them will have to fight from their first breath. Others will need medical treatment, hospital stays over Christmas, and surgeries in their first months of life. Some will battle acute illness throughout their childhood.

Your company’s big heart can help tiny ones this Christmas. Your amazing donation will be used to deliver:

  • Improved quality of life for children living with illness
  • Brighter days for the Children in Our Lady’s Children Hospital Crumlin

€1 million needed to support the Tiny Hearts campaign to purchase life-saving equipment

In 2019, Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital will require €500,000 to purchase vital life-saving equipment and €1m is required for play, childhood experiences, therapies and parent support. CMRF Crumlin have also committed to investing €5m to find cures and treatments for children.

Donations will help stop childhood illness in its tracks, deliver solutions and enable gentler treatments.

Day after day staff do whatever it takes to deliver extraordinary care, transformative treatment, early diagnosis, cutting-edge technology, support and hope to Ireland’s sickest children and their families.
