Spring Grove Clinic are delighted to support the ECMO Charity in association with Yorkhills Children’s Foundation and will be holding many events to raise awareness and funds in the coming months. ECMO is a remarkable machine which provides support for patients with critical heart and lung problems and at present there is only one unit available for children at Glasgow’s Yorkhill.
Our son, Harry was very lucky and was placed on the ECMO machine when he was born and it saved his life. Harry is now thriving and we would like to ensure that other children get the same chance as he has been given.
Please support us in one of our events or donate at Spring Grove Clinic Thank you for helping give children like Harry a chance.
