Acute breathing problems are among the most common cause of infant mortality.
It's terrifying how quickly they can claim the lives of babies like Aria without prompt treatment.
When Aria was born by caesarean section in Rockhampton back in 2013, she did not let out a comforting cry to tell her parents all was well. In fact, she didn't make so much as a whimper.
To her mum Jessica's horror, Aria was deathly silent, and the doctor in attendance quickly realised the terrible reason why. Aria has inhaled amniotic fluid during her delivery which caused her to suffer from meconium aspiration syndrome and she was fighting to breathe.
Acute breathing problems like Aria's are a leading cause of infant mortality. So please give what you can today. Every dollar you are able to contribute will help ensure you loved-one will have the best care available should they every find themselves in a situation like Aria's.
