Despite the world-class care of the Women’s Newborn Intensive Care Unit (NICU) unit, Lily was born too young to survive.
At 23 weeks and two days into Kristie’s pregnancy, her waters unexpectedly broke. Up to that point Kristie had enjoyed a healthy pregnancy. Four days later on March 26 2014 at 11:43am, Lily Mary Lockyer was born weighing only 558 grams.
Just one day later, Lily’s parents, Kristie and Pete made the difficult decision to say goodbye to their beautiful daughter.
In memory of Lily, the Lilyroo Fund was officially launched on Thursday 7 August 2014 and has, since that date, been raising funds to support the Women’s Newborn Intensive Care Unit (NICU) unit.
The total raised so far towards the Lilyroo Fund is $220,396.84.
