SSNAP'S 40th Anniversary - Family Journeys through the Decades
33 years ago - The Harris Family and Baby Robyn
"I was born at 25 weeks in the JR hospital weighing 1lb 10oz. I stayed in SCBU till the end of October (having been born in June) receiving round the clock care and my parents received wonderful support too. I was one month old when I had my first hug from my Dad outside of my incubator!
I literally wouldn’t be here today without all the care, medical input and help from everyone at SSNAP and SCBU!
I am now working as an Occupational Therapist in dementia research and despite some challenges, from a bleed on my brain, I live a full and varied life.
I hope this encourages the parents, children of SSNAP and their other care givers that there is hope and a future available in some form for everyone!
Keep up your great work! Love and deep gratitude from, a grateful SCBU-er! "
