With the help of The Royal Children's Hospital Foundation, countless fundraisers and thousands of generous donors, Finnan's Gift has already made some fabulous gifts to The Royal Children's Hospital, Melbourne.

 

2017: New Technology for the Cardiac Surgery Unit

Finnan's Gift founders, Alisa and Olliver Camplin-Warner, have announced that the 2017 Grant will be for a Karl Storz Vitom and Camera System for the Cardiac Surgery Unit, requiring a fundraising goal of $150,000.

 

The innovative equipment records operating procedures in full high-definition, also taking still photos in theatre that will be used to provide vital imagery and training to surgeons and clinical staff, both during and post surgery. 

 

2016: Upgrade the Arrhythmia Treatment Equiptment

Finnan's Gift reached it's outstanding fundraising target of $150,000 by March 2016 to upgrade the Arrhythmia treatment equiptment at the Royal Children's Hospital, Melbourne.

The new technology’s remarkable accuracy at identifying and targeting the affected area of the heart to destroy any abnormal electrical impulses causing Arrhythmia. This will result in shorter, less invasive surgical procedures, as well as reduced waiting times for patients, with more children able to be successfully treated each year.

2015: New Pumps for Heart/Lung Life Support Machines

Finnan's Gift reached its ambitious fundraising goal of $250,000 to purchase new pumps for the RCH's heart/lung life support machines.

These vital machines take over the child's heart and lung functions to give their organs the rest needed to recover. The life support machines are used for the RCH's sickest cardiac patients who would be unlikely to survive without them.

2014: Monitors for the Paediatric Intensive Care Unit
Finnan’s Gift reached its fundraising goal of $75,000 which will provide the hospital with six Near Infrared Spectroscopy monitors to be used on its sickest patients in intensive care.
 

Data obtained from these monitors will enable RCH medical staff to pick up early warning signs which may potentially save a child’s life. Read more.

2013: Perfusion team at the RCH
With a fundraising goal of $20,000, the 2013 Finnan’s Gift Grant will be focused on continuing international leadership and advancing essential equipment needed by The Royal Children's Hospital perfusion team. Read more.

2012: Paediatric Intensive Care Nurses
April 2012 saw the first Finnan’s Gift Grant made to the wonderful Paediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) nurses.

This $20,000 grant will fund an internal/external further education program for the PICU nurses who are currently not financially supported to attend or present at industry conferences. Read more

2011: Echocardiology Scanner

In 2011 Finnan's Gift was launched with the goal of raising $300,000 to buy a much needed echocardiology machine for the Cardiology Department at the RCH. 

On the 20 October 2011, this crucial piece of medical equipment was unveiled by Alisa and Oliver Camplin-Warner and handed over to the RCH Cardiology Department. Read more.

 

With your help, we hope to give so much more and ensure fewer parents leave the hospital with empty arms and aching hearts.

Finnan's Gift will be forever grateful to the care and kindness that was shown to Finnan and the Camplin-Warner family during their journey in the Intensive Care Unit at the RCH. Each year, on Finnan's Birthday, Finnan's Gift will deliver a delicious treat for the staff, patients and famillies in recognition of this very special day.

Every year on Finnan's birthday a grant will be made to a different department of the RCH who helped in Finnan's care.

One year the Finnan's Gift Grant might help an up-and-coming surgeon, the next year it might provide something special for patients, or perhaps fund research, buy equipment or assist with further education or counseling services. 

Finnan's Gift Grants will focus on excellence in leadership and education, technology and equipment, and medical research that directly improves support for patients and their families.
