In memory of their son, Finnan, Alisa andOliver Camplin-Warner today presented theCardiac Department at the Royal Children’sHospital (RCH), Melbourne, with a $150,000cheque.  This outstanding contribution willenable the RCH to purchase state of the artHeart Arrhythmia equipment. The donationbrings the total amount raised by Finnan’sGift since 2011 to more than $1.25 million.

 

“We are so proud to be able to honour Finnan’s memory in this way and to support so many patients and their families at the RCH. Meeting the Gunn family at the cheque handover event today, and hearing how extensive Julian’s Heart Arrhythmia issues have been, reminds you how serious every Congenital Heart Disease (CHD) patients journey is. It reaffirms for us, that Finnan’s Gift is truly making a tangible difference in helping the RCH improve and save lives of children with cardiac issues,” said Alisa.

 

Arrhythmia in children is a potentially life threatening condition where abnormal electrical impulses cause the patients heart to beat irregularly. This cutting edge technology identifies and destroys the abnormal electrical impulses that cause Heart Arrhythmia with incredible accuracy, enabling the RCH to successfully treat more cardiac patients, improve recovery times and reduce stress on families.

 

“Since 2011 Finnan’s Gift has funded numerous pieces of world-class equipment and invested in advanced training through scholarships that have directly improved the care of cardiac patients and children requiring intensive care treatment at the RCH. 

 

This simply would not have been possible without our wonderful supporters from across the community, many of whom are families just like us, ” said Alisa.

 

Sue Hunt, CEO, RCH Foundation thanked the Camplin-Warner’s for their unwavering commitment and heartfelt support.

 

“Alisa and Oliver have shown incredible dedication in their support of cardiac care at the RCH. Their compassion for fellow families affected by congenital heart disease and drive to make a difference has helped build a strong community of supporters that together are changing the future of children’s health.”
