sydney_kids: When little Maksim needed a kidney transplant, his

When little Maksim needed a kidney transplant, his mum and dad were the first to put their hands up to be his donor. Amazingly, Maksim’s dad was a match. The transplant was a huge success and after years of extraordinary care at the Hospital, Maksim was ready to spend Christmas at home with a healthy, working kidney!

Christmas is officially here thanks to this little legend. Alex has spent the past three weeks in Hospital recovering from surgery, he can't be home to decorate his own Christmas tree so today he had the very important job of turning on the Hospital's Christmas lights. As you can see, he was extremely excited to brighten up everyone's Monday - his smile says it all! Thanks to Ausgrid for sponsoring this jolly day and kick-starting our festive celebrations 🎄🎅🎉 Christmas

sydney_kids: It was a moment his parents always feared,

It was a moment his parents always feared, and it came sooner than expected. Aged only two and a half, Maksim’s kidneys stopped working and he needed a transplant to survive. They faced 18 months of Hospital stays, dialysis and surgeries as his dedicated team prepared his tiny body for a transplant. Then on the 10 of November last year, the day they'd been waiting for arrived. The transplant was a huge success and just before Christmas Maksim finally went home with a healthy, working kidney! Thanks to the amazing care, love and dedication from everyone at the Hospital, Maksim spent last Christmas at home with his family.

sydney_kids: Dr Vasant Chinnabhandar never ceases to be inspired

Dr Vasant Chinnabhandar never ceases to be inspired by the resilience of the children he treats. "No matter what they are going through they still manage to be themselves, to be children." One such patient is two-year-old Archer, who was diagnosed with a rare form of Leukaemia in January. Dr Chinnabhandar looked after Archer during his bone marrow transplant treatment, and it was a happy reunion when they bumped into each other in the hall months later and Archer reached up to take his doctor’s hand so that they could walk together. Archer’s dad Carl captured the moment: "It sums up the lovely rapport they have with each other and, importantly, shows the transformation from Archer’s lowest ebb in transplant to the vibrant, healthy little boy he is now, thanks to the life-saving work of doctors like Vasant." 💛 ChildrensHospital Kids Awareness

sydney_kids: Meg

Meg's been coming to the Hospital since she was six weeks old after being diagnosed with cystic fibrosis. It's a big week ahead as she finishes her HSC and graduates from Sydney Children's Hospital, Randwick this Friday 💛 “It’s the last week of my HSC and what can I say, Year 12 has never had a dull moment. To everyone who has supported me over this tough year I want to say a massive thank you. You have pushed me through the hardest year I’ve ever had and the most important year. I could not have done this without the legend mamma Nat by my side and everyone else who stood by me every week after tafe on a Tuesday, during exam weeks last year at school, and congratulating me after one of my biggest dancing achievements at NIDA last year. It’s been a couple of tough weeks but we will all get through and I know we can smash it!” Thank you for sharing your story Meg! We're all wishing you good luck for your last exam!

sydney_kids: Happy 100th birthday Kathleen! 🎉🎂🎁 On this milestone occasion

Happy 100th birthday Kathleen! 🎉🎂🎁 On this milestone occasion she didn’t need presents or praise, instead asking friends and family to donate to a cause dear to her heart. We're so honoured to receive a donation of $1,400 and are thrilled to put this money to good use at the Hospital. In Kathleen’s lifetime she has seen the discovery of penicillin, x-ray technology, advancements in chemo and radiotherapy, the invention of the pacemaker, defibrillator and MRI. And without doubt, Kathleen has also achieved so much in her century of life. Kathleen is a mum, grandmother and great-grandmother. She had five children, although many years ago sadly lost a daughter to leukaemia. Her great-granddaughter now requires long-term medical care after being diagnosed with serious health condition a few years ago. Kathleen’s donation will go towards departments and causes that are most important to her, like medical research. Who knows what will be discovered next? Whether or not your special day is a milestone occasion, asking for donations in lieu of gifts will make a big difference to kids at Sydney Children's Hospital, Randwick: www.schf.org.au/fundraise/getstarted/special-occasion 💛 ChildrensHospital Kids

sydney_kids: At just eight months old, Doctors discovered Teddy

At just eight months old, Doctors discovered Teddy Jean had a hole in her heart. For some kids, the hole can close on its own, but little Teddy needed surgery… “On the 29 August this year, we watched as our baby was wheeled into surgery. We knew she was in the best possible hands but it was still the longest three hours of our lives. The first few nights were the hardest as we watched over her, worrying about how she was coping but each day we saw a little improvement. Six weeks on and she’s back to her happy, normal self, enjoying day care with her friends. Although she’ll need regular checkups for the foreseeable future, it’s so wonderful to think that for us, the scariest part is over.” Marnie, Teddy’s mum This evening, the annual sunSCHine event is taking place in support of the Cardiology Department. For Marnie, it's especially close to her heart. Funds for life saving equipment used to help Teddy were raised by events like sunSCHine and she's now a dedicated member of the event Committee helping to organise the event: "I'm just so grateful and am really looking forward to raising vital funds to support the very people who cared for my little girl.”

“Child life therapists are so tuned into what excites kids, they nourished his mind when his body was too sick to move.” Kalita, mum of Flynn. When Flynn was diagnosed with leukaemia doctors and nurses worked their hardest to save him. At the same time, Child Life Therapists were dedicated to making sure he thrived. When Flynn faced a procedure, they were there with distraction play. When it was his birthday, they were there to make sure the special occasion was celebrated and when he struggled to swallow antibiotics, they were there with a plan to help him take them. Child Life and Music Therapy plays a vital role in creating a Hospital environment where kids can still be kids. We're incredibly grateful to an amazing group of students at UNSW who've spent all year fundraising in support of the Child Life and Music Therapy program here at the Hospital. From sponsored runs and crazy challenges, to a 24 hour fun-a-thon, the team have raised over $160,330 making a huge difference to sick kids.
