Hi there Rory.. You and your family do not know me. I am an ex Dargaville girl now living in Australia.  I still have family and friend that live in Dargaville.  I happened to see Trudi Johnstons request on facebook to look at your new webpage!!  You story has touched me so very much. You see 5 years ago I a had a baby, his name is Reilly.  Reilly was born with Craniosynostosis (a brain and head deformity) and we spent time at the Neurosurgical Department at Starship Hospital when he has 6 months old, the same place that you are now. Reilly had major head surgery and is now a lot better he was very strong, just like you.  So we would love to donate some money to your mum and dad and family and we are also sending all of our positive energy and thoughts to you and your family.  You are a brave wee man and you have some special friends and family. You look after yourself and say hi to all the lovely doctors and nurses there from us!  Nellwyn, Kyle, Reilly and Willow Smith - Australia

Hi Rory We are so proud of you for being such a brave and courageous wee man, it is awful having to be sick and being in bed for so long is very boring, but each day you will get stronger and feel a bit better.  We are all sending you our love and cuddles, and Logan wants to come up and visit you one day soon. Mikayla is getting so big now she is just turned 16 weeks old yesterday and is so smiley and cheeky.  Logan and her will have to send you some photos of them to see how much she has grown.  Take care, we will keep in touch - love heaps from your cousins in the naki - jason, wendy, logan and mikayla
