NAIT grandparents Donald and Alison Urquhart from Dumbarton, Scotland raised a magnificent £455 at their Ruby Wedding celebration!!!!
Donald and Alison are the parents of Cameron Urquhart and his wife Sian, also from Dumbarton. They have two NAIT ‘babies’.
Ewan, born in 2010 with a platelet count of 4,000/μl – untreated as FNAIT was unknown during her pregnancy as there is still no prenatal screening. Ewan had 4 platelet transfusions after suffering 2 intra-cranial hemorrhages but he’s developing well with no ongoing issues.
Their second son, Callum, was born in 2014. Sian was treated weekly with IVIG and Callum was born with a platelet count of 30,000/μl with no ICH’s. Callum received 1 platelet transfusion and IVIG before his platelets stabilised.
