Each year over 150,000 sick children come through the doors of CHI at Crumlin hospital. Some will stay for hours while others will stay for days, weeks or even months sometimes calling the hospital their home from home. For Gemma Hutton, the hospital became her home when her son Barra was born with a life threatening Congenital Heart Defect (CHD) last year. Barra was only three days old when he had open heart surgery. To celebrate Barra’s first birthday, his Super Nanny Rose Daly is going to walk 100 miles to raise vital funds for Children’s Health Foundation Crumlin.
