Ollie’s a happy, funny nine-year-old who eats like his friends, goes to mainstream school and is a fierce competitor on the sports field. Ollie still loves soccer, has taken up cricket and is fast becoming a swimming superstar.
He loves to run and has a running blade, with the help of Sydney Children’s Hospital, Randwick. This blade took him all the way to the state championships in cross country.
Ollie’s fierce, funny and brave. It’s how he’s coped with 28 major operations and being really sick for most of his life. Tracy – Ollie’s mum
Ollie has received care from so many different specialist teams within Sydney Children’s Hospital, Randwick – he really does represent all the 69,000 children cared for by the Hospital each year.
Today, you wouldn’t know by Ollie’s infectious grin just how much he’s been through.
“If you have kids you love, you want to know that if they get sick, the clever people at the Hospital have the tools, techniques, machines and staff they need to fix them. For us, that’s been a gift we’ll never be able to repay. The Hospital has given Ollie to us - beautifully healed and ready for life.” Tracy – Ollie’s mum
