Our Kids, more formally known as the Northern Rivers Children's Health Fund, was founded in 2001 by Dr Chris Ingall.
Our Kids aims to improve the health services for children in the Northern Rivers area by purchasing paediatric equipment for the Lismore Base Hospital and the surrounding Northern Rivers hospitals, including Lismore, Tweed and Grafton hospitals.
Through the generosity of our community, Our Kids has purchased $2 million+ worth of paediatric equipment for our local hospitals.
This equipment benefits our community by helping kids stay local when needing medical care.
Drew was born with a diaphragmatic hernia and has come through a very stormy course. She is now a bright and bubbly baby who is slowly but surely coming off her oxygen therapy.
Both Logan and Isabella were born extremely prematurely. Both are thriving.
Tarli was born 2 and a half months early and spent her early life in the special care nursery. She has grown and developed perfectly well and is as smart as a whip.
