Isaac's story

Our beautiful baby son Isaac was born 16 weeks prematurely on 27 October 2012. He was born suddenly, after a perfectly normal pregnancy. We were lucky enough to be transferred to RHW for his birth, where they were able to look after him in the NICU. 

Isaac was big for his age, and every new day gave us hope as he bravely fought the issues common for micro-preemies.

Three weeks into his journey he became unwell with an infection which he was unable to beat, and he sadly passed away. 

Isaac's dad Grant, Lucy Murphy and three others ran for Isaac as part of RFPB last year. In 2014 we had over 20 friends and family running as part of Sophie's team for her boys and as Team Isaac.

We are also ran for three other children who had an early start to life and were all cared for at RHW- Harrison Clarke, Loki Harvey, Lucy McDonnell, and in memory of beautiful Dakota Bale. 

We are aiming to raise as much money as we can this year to go towards this very important research, so it can help other babies like Isaac get the best possible chance to live. 

In 2014, Team Isaac raised more than $25,000 for Running For Premature Babies.
