Kiran and Ramesh raised this donation in memory of their beautiful son, Milan. Milan was born prematurely on April 21st 2020 and sadly passed away on the Neonatal Unit on the April 29th 2020. 

Nikki Farrington, Specialist Nurse Bereavement & Family Support, said: "Kiran and Ramesh are truly remarkable people who have found the strength and bravery to give back to other neonatal families, which they have done amidst their own devastation.

"When Kiran heard about the Neonatal DadPad she immediately felt this is something they wanted to support. Following their own experience, they knew how much this would provide additional benefit for our fathers on the NNU. 

"We as a team feel humbled by this support and so very grateful. We have already had so much positive feedback." 

Thank you, Kiran and Ramesh.
