On 2nd May 2015 our amazing twins were born. We were thrown straight into the roller coaster of parenthood when our daughter Sienna was born with no complications, but then our son Luca struggled to survive due to a prolapsed cord. We watched, helpless, as doctors flooded the room and took over the enormous responsibility of keeping our son alive.
The focus and determination they showed in those early moments will never leave our minds. Luca was given oxygen and a relatively new “cooling mat” treatment to prevent his tiny brain from swelling. We were given the devastating news that he might not survive, but if he did was likely to face severe brain damage. The nurses in the days ahead were nothing short of angels. The Trevor Mann Baby Unit which we had heard of but never thought we would need became our lifeline.
Every minute was spent watching and hoping that Luca would survive. We saw the dedication and care given to every single child first hand. Day by day Luca built up his strength and overcame small milestones. We started to get some more positive feedback from doctors over the coming weeks and by week 4 we were able to take Luca home to meet his sister Sienna.
We have had two years of testing and monitoring and finally aged 2 years old we are so happy to say that Luca has reached every milestone alongside his sister. We could call it a miracle. But like many things in life, it wasn’t luck, but the relentless hard work of the doctors and nurses at the Trevor Mann Baby Unit that kept our son alive. We can never repay what this means to us. But I hope that any proceeds made from the 50 Holes For 50 Years Golf event can go to people and equipment to whom we literally owe our lives.’
