Our beloved Nina and Nacho welcomed baby boy, Nikita on 13 August. What should be a happy time has brought heartbreak as their beautiful little fella was born early due to complications and has been diagnosed with Congenital Leukaemia - a rare and dangerous condition.
Calling central Australia home, Nina was flown to Adelaide Hospital as little unborn Nikita was struggling and needed an assisted birth. Nina is now recovering from surgery and both her and Nacho are aching to hold their little boy. Nikita is being kept in an incubator and while there are treatments, they are invasive and a great risk for such a fragile new little human.
I’m hoping the community of Alice Springs (and anyone Nina and Nacho have touched) will rally together to support them both to stay in Adelaide as long as needed for their precious baby’s health. I know Nacho and Nina would be first in line helping someone in need - let’s get behind their little family and give them the time they need to bring their baby home safe and sound.
Over a year on and Nikita and his supporters are still fighting. Nina and Nacho are now living in Melbourne to be close to the hospital where little Nikita can receive the best care and transplants. They still need your help to live, support and care for their amazingly brave little man - please help in any way you can and follow the page for updates xxx
