Climb for Jude ❤️💙


raised so far


of $4,000 goal

Sam and I are participating in the Adelaide Oval roof climb to raise funds for HeartKids Sweetheart day, in honour of Jude, our very own heart warrior 💙 ❤️

Jude fell extremely ill with a bacterial infection at 24 days old, he had GBS sepsis, meningitis and we also found out that Jude had CHD and was in heart failure.

Jude spent 3 weeks in the WCH before being flown to Westmead in Sydney for open heart surgery to repair his ASD and VSD.

We were in Westmead for 5 weeks before heading home post surgery.

Jude has recovered well from his open heart surgery, however due to the meningitis infection he has sustained injury to his brain, causing vision impairment and he has just recently been diagnosed with cerebral palsy.

Jude has already overcome so much and shown so much strength.

Making a donation will mean so much to us as HeartKids supports families just like ours, and our little lion heart Jude 🤍
