When we arrived on ward 84 @ RMCH. I felt my world had ended. Our stay was a planned admission but for the 5 days post diagnosis before coming into hospital my brain stopped working so when I unpacked I found I had forgotten many essentials. We also started our journey in October and the ward was cold at times.
The bag we received from milly’s smiles was amazing!!! It contained so much of what we needed and also so much stuff we didn’t know we needed until it was there. Our daughter still uses her millys blanket daily 7 months into our journey. The hot drink cup with a lid became so well used as the amount of brews you make is unbelievable!
Little things like pen and paper to keep notes as my brain couldn’t store the information was an enormous help. For families coming into the ward with no warning they are invaluable and have helped them so much
We can’t thank you all enough for supporting this worthwhile charity xx
