We did it... an echo machine!

Posted by Kylie Flament on 18 October 2013

After many months, many events, and many amazing supporters, we have finally done it...  I had a call this afternoon from Precious Hearts to confirm that they will donate the remaining $7,239.72 to allow us to purchase a new cardiac ultrasound (echo) machine!  Added to the amazing events in Newcastle (the Zipper Tickers dinner) and Sydney (the Echo Gala Dinner), plus the wide range of fundraisers (including Tri and Tri Again and so many others) plus individual donations and efforts, we've at last got the $250,000 we need for a new machine.

I can't thank everyone enough for this incredible gift to the Heart Centre.  It will allow us to see more patients with the latest technology, to look inside the heart of an unborn baby, an infant, a child or a teenager in a painless and non-invasive way, to make clinical decisions about treatment and to confirm that surgery has been successful.  It is a milestone for us and one that we couldn't have done without so many incredible people.  Thank you all!  We look forward to welcoming you in to celebrate when the new machine arrives in a few months.
