In memory of their son Finnan Maximus Camplin-Warner, Alisa and Oliver Camplin-Warner today made another major contribution to cardiac care at The Royal Children’s Hospital (RCH). The Camplin-Warners presented the RCH Cardiology Department with a $150,000 cheque for a Karl Storz Vitom and Camera System for the Cardiac Surgery Unit. This brings the total amount raised by Finnan’s Gift since 2011 to more than $1.85 million.


This innovative piece of equipment records operating procedures in full high-definition. It is also able to take still photos in theatre that will be used to provide vital imagery and training to surgeons and clinical staff, both during and post-surgery. 


The Camplin-Warners began Finnan’s Gift when their son, Finnan, passed away from congenital heart disease at just 10 days old. Alisa said the couple established Finnan’s Gift to assist the great work of RCH doctors and nurses, and to save other children and their parents from the same grief.


“We are so proud to be able to honour Finnan’s memory in this way and to support so many patients and their families at the RCH.


“Since 2011 Finnan’s Gift has funded numerous pieces of state of the art equipment and invested in advanced training through scholarships which have directly improved the care of cardiac patients at the RCH. 


“This simply would not have been possible without our wonderful supporters from across the community, many of whom are families just like us,” said Alisa.


The Camplin-Warners also announced that in 2018 fundraising through Finnan’s Gift will support an Australian first Cardio-Oncology Service for children with paediatric cancer at the RCH.


 “Finnan’s Gift is passionate about supporting world class, cutting edge initiatives, and funds raised in 2018 will assist in the identification, tracking and management of children who are at risk heart damage as a result of oncology treatment,” said Alisa.


“Our $200,000 fundraising goal will allow the purchase of a portable Echo Machine that will increase timely access to cardiology services for children with cancer, while also furthering research and education,” said Oliver.


Sue Hunt, Chief Executive Officer, RCH Foundation thanked the Camplin-Warners for their unwavering commitment and support of the RCH.


“Alisa and Oliver have shown incredible dedication in their support of cardiac care at the RCH. Their compassion for fellow families affected by congenital heart disease and drive to make a difference has helped build a strong community of supporters that together are changing the future of children’s health.”


To help reach this target, Finnan’s Gift is calling on all of our supporters to get involved – whether it be running or walking in this year’s Melbourne Marathon, holding your own fundraiser, getting a table of friends together for the Op Shop ball in November or making a direct donation, every bit will help us to mend broken young hearts.
