Francis with Kurt Gidley from the Newcastle Knights


The excitement seen on the faces of Francis, Chris and their beautiful girls Sheree and Jamira at the recent visit of the Newcastle Knights to Ronald McDonald House Tamworth was lovely.

The family have spent the last few weeks with their precious baby Sarah in special care nursery. Sarah arrived 6 weeks early at Moree Hospital, when mum and bub had to be airlifted to Newcastle. Sarah proved to be a little fighter and after only 2 days in Newcastle was transported back to Tamworth Rural Referral Hospital, special care nursery.

Being the school holidays Chris has commented how wonderful it has been to be together as a family at Ronald McDonald House Tamworth. The recent visit by the Newcastle Knights will see the family attending their first ever 1st Grade football game, even if Mum is a Manly supporter but has agreed that the Knights are now her second team.

They have enjoying the BBQ area to relax together while Sarah continues to become stronger and getting ready to return home to Moree in the near future.
