Our little man Arden Wolfe Zenzmaier has spent the duration of his life (almost 5 months) in the PICU at Westmead Children's Hospital.
Born with Severe Aortic Stenosis he has endured 9 surgeries, 5 days on ECMO (life support), 6+ weeks intubated, 9+ procedures, 17+ invasive blood tests, 15+ Echocardiograms, 40+ XRays, a number of scans and blood transfusions, 10+ ECG's, going on 9 weeks of heavy antibiotics.. and the list goes on.
We are incredibly grateful for everything the PICU team has done to keep our little fighter alive and with your support would love to give something back. Donations go towards specialised training, education and research for the team of dedicated professionals. Their goal this year is to raise $60k. You will be paying tribute to the courage and spirit of the critically-ill children they care for each year which includes our brave little man Arden.
