Asher's Gift

By David Keir Join Me

My Updates

Forever in our hearts

Friday 20th Aug
Asher Clif Keir has peacefully and comfortably passed away in our arms at 1am today (born 15.8.21). He was the most precious boy and looked just like his big sister. 

It is of course a long story, however basically this is due to complications of his surgery to fix an oesophageal congenital defect. He was then transferred to westmead but by that time it was too late. 

Unfortunately, this was not an expected outcome and there are question marks and investigations into why this happened. Asher should not have died. But he has, and this is our journey to get through.

We don't want material things like flowers, but the teams in the nicu and Ronald MacDonald are life savers for so many, if you want to give, then give to them. We have set up a donation page in little Asher's honour. 

We are so lucky to have the family and friends that we do have and have already supported us so much. 

We fell in love with our little man in the last few days and he will be deeply missed.

Thank you to my Sponsors

I am so happy that all this money is going to very special equipment in the neonatal ward in Asher's honour. He was only here for a few days but has already made a massive difference.
