The story of the "Irish Twins"

Steele-Blue and Daxton, were born less than a year apart. July 27, 2020 and July 22, 2021. Hence the reference to the "Irish Twins". 

Steele Blue was born premature at McMaster Children's Hospital, at 29 weeks and only 1 lb.  He was then transferred to Grand River for his final three weeks of care.  Daxton was born at Grand River 5 weeks premature weighing just over 3 lbs.

"[They both received} exceptional care at the NICU,  and as you can see are beautiful and healthy little boys,".  Grandparents Juliana and Bernard.

Help them reach their $1,000 fundraising goal for Grand River Kids!

Funds raised from the "Irish Twins' Grand Grill BBQ & Garage Sale supports much needed new medical equipment, research and development so more babies born pre maturely in Waterloo Region can have a fighting chance to lead a normal life like Steele Blue and Daxton.
