DD wings foundation is a charity I started in honour of my son Drake.
Drake was a magical, kind and loving boy, who went through so much in his short life. Drake had cpr performed 3 times in his very short time. A total of 17 hospital admissions before his 2nd birthday. Unfortunately no doctors, specialists or paediatrics could determine the cause of his episode's and why he was constantly sick. On the 16th October 2016, Drake lost his fight and went to sleep and never woke up again. His mother, a medic, performed cpr on him until back up paramedics arrived to take over. He was resused for 1hr 42 min's in total with no signs of life. He was declared 14:32pm. Drake has left 2 perents who are totally devastated. They gave it their all. Endless nights In hospitals by his side no matter what, sleeping in hospital parking lots, just to be close incase something happens. Loss of income and heavily drowning in medical bills from Drakes admissions and tests. But through it all they tried to maintain strength and love him endlessly.they suffered so much pain, hurt, anguish, worry. Their worst nightmare came true. They had to say goodbye to their only child at a mere age of 2. Exactly a week after his 2nd birthday. A simple afternoon nap, became their worst nightmare.
Now, through all her heartache, pain, devastation, Drakes mom, Sindy has started a foundation named DD Wings foundation in drake's honour. The foundation already did it first project where they collected and delivered Christmas presents stuck in hospital over the Christmas period. Endless amount of joy, appreciation and smiles where given because of Sindy relentless dedication and hard work to make it possible. The farther dressed up as Santa clause and mommy dressed up as his helper elve. They woke up at 6am, prepared and drove to 14 hospitals and 2 children's homes Inot a period of 3 days. Photos and updates can be found on the DD Wings Foundation Facebook page.
The foundation's main aim is to assist parents going through similar things. We aim to be a financial support to parents who cannot afford all the medication, transport and equipment the child may desperately need. We also aim to upgrade playing areas in hospitals for children in hospital to give the kiddies something constructive to do. These will be ongoing projects which desperately need funding. The funding is needed for the foundations projects and to give the parents some repreave from financial woes they are facing.
Please find it in your heart to donate to this super cause. This is what the parents live for now. They want to make a difference to others. And it's only possible with your help.
