My name is Colin. I am a dad to four wonderful kids, to whom our youngest, Fíadh was born in May 2021 with CHD, Pulmonary Atresia, VSD’s, MAPCAs and DiGeorge Syndrome. The first year and a half of Fíadh’s life was an uphill battle, but we got through it, and more so we got through with the welcomed support from Jack and Jill Children’s Foundation. Their service allowed us to care for Fíadh at home ensuring all her medical needs were met while keeping her siblings, Jake, Lilly and Harry’s daily life as normal as possible as they tried to come to terms with Fíadh’s condition and the new change to our home life. With this golden support, we were in a position to spend much needed quality time with our other children after long stints in hospital while our Jack and Jill nurse would care for Fíadh in the comfort of her own home which as parents gave us great peace of mind.
The Jack and Jill Children's Foundation are currently supporting 26 families of children with complex medical needs in Co Galway, including our daughter Fíadh, and over 400 families across Ireland. Your support truly makes a difference. We cannot express enough how invaluable the support from the Jack & Jill Foundation has been to our family.
Every €18 raised will provide ONE HOUR in-home nursing care for a Jack & Jill family locally.
