“A neo-natal intensive care unit is not a nice place to be. Once you see several babies in incubators and then realise your own child is also laying in one, the harsh reality hits home.

The environment is almost suffocating, but there is help and support to aid you during this difficult time.” – Mark & Louise Applin, Parents of Ophelia Applin

Noah's Big Charity is an example of how one family's struggle has benefited countless others. Probably without even realising the effect their sacrifice and love has had.

My Brother and Sister-in Law are one of the others.
Their daughter, Ophelia, was born in June 2017. Within a few days, when her condition did not improve, she was moved to the neo-natal intensive care unit at the Royal London Hospital.

To say it was stressful on them would be a lie, it was a lot worse.

The money raised by NBC ensures parents, like them, are given as much support as possible. And the importance of this support cannot be overstated. It's vital and priceless in equal measure. 

Ophelia passed away on the 14th July 2017, aged 16 days. They and their families are forever thankful to Noah's Big Charity and all the staff at the hospital.
