Baby Willow

We have been overwhelmed by the outpouring of emotion and messages of goodwill for baby Willow, whose incredible story was featured on 60 Minutes on 6 March.

The story of baby Willow's survival is extraordinary - as is the remarkable work of Dr Ryan Hodges and his medical team, who performed world-first in-utero surgery to remove a tumour in baby Willow's lung. This ground-breaking surgery had never been performed before and was 100% successful, saving the lives of baby Willow and her mother Sam. There was no better gift for baby Willow and her loving family.

If you would like to support life-saving research and ground-breaking medical interventions such as this, you can help by donating to Monash Women's today to help us further our vital work for Victoria's precious babies and their mums.
