Please help a preemie

Dear hubbers,

 

I am well aware that this is not the place to advertise items for sale but, given the circumstances, I was hoping that you could help find a buyer for a twin travel system (items in the "Other" section don't get viewed much).

 

Admin, could you please allow this one?

 

Friends of mine were expecting twins, but the babies arrived at 28 weeks.  The little boy did not survive.  The parents need to sell the Graco twin stroller / car seat system.  With medical expenses piling up they cannot just throw it out, even though it breaks their hearts to see it in their home.

 

Please see the ad for more info:

Thank you for reading this.  (The travel system is in Fourways, Gauteng.  The price has been reduced from R6000 to R5000.)

 

 

Edit 1: Title changed. Please see page 2. The family are also in need of preemie necessities.

 

- Huggies Preemie nappies (the only brand they've found to be adjustable enough to fit);

- Avent breastmilk storage bags (using A LOT of these);

- Baby wipes for sensitive skin;

- Bum cream;

- Baby top to toe wash; and

- Baby aqueous cream.

 

If any of these items are ordered online from Dischem, they can be collected from a physical store with no shipping charge.  (Please PM me for contact details as I cannot post my cell number here.)

 

 

Edit 2: Alternatively, any financial contributions will be very much appreciated.

EDIT 3: Removed the items of which little Karmi has enough of for now - thank you to the kind people who donated it!

 

EDIT 4: Price reduction of Graco twin travel system.

 

 

Thank you for the contributions to date, your support and many kind messages.

Sad story - hope some good can come from it and they can sell the stroller system.

Sorry for their tragic loss.

Maybe see if you can advertise it on the South African Multiple Birth Association (SAMBA) Facebook group.

The twins came into NICU two days before ours was discharged. I remember how very tiny they were. We were shocked to hear that the boy passed away. Never had a chance to speak to them parents but it was heartbreaking to see their sadness in their loss vs our elation of taking ours home. Holding thumbs for the little girl, these premmies are fighters and she's in good hands with the NICU staff.

My sympathy also for the family. Strange how the girls are always the fighters. My own prem turns 14 in two months time. It seems like yesterday when she was barely the size of my hand and I had to feed her through a tube with a syringe. Holding thumbs as well.
