About the Trust:
The Harry Cunningham Trust has been set up by Niki and Jamie Cunningham on behalf of their son, Harry, who died aged 26 hours on 10th June 2012. He was born by emergency caesarean section after suffering from a a ruptured vessel in his umbilical cord during in labour, meaning he was without oxygen for half an hour, causing considerable brain damage and organ failure.
The team at the Royal Devon & Exeter Hospital worked tirelessly to resuscitate Harry, and he was immediately taken to their neonatal facility. Harry received hours and hours of intensive care and treatment, with the Doctors and nurses working so hard around the clock, using ground breaking treatment and trying all the could to prolong Harry's life.
Harry managed to meet his entire family in his day at the neonatal ward, and the staff made the whole family all feel welcome and at ease whilst meeting and spending time with Harry, creating precious and everlasting memories.
Had it not have been for the staff at the neonatal ward, not only may the family not have been able to meet Harry but they would not have had that incredibly special 26 hours with their beautiful boy.
