Maeve was born at the Mercy Hospital on November 12th 2006. She was 3 months prem and weighed 800grams. She stayed in NICU for 95 days. Her first year was full of hospital stays and seeing all sorts of specialists. 13 years on Maeve is still tiny but she’s ready to take on the world. She currently holds 2nd place in Australia for Irish Dancing and 28th in the World. She has won Division Cross Country and 1500 and 800m races also for Division at school level. We owe so much to NICU and all the staff at the Mercy for getting her this far. We had two calls to come and say good bye and yet her persistence to live and feisty personality is how she’s approaching life even still today.
