“The gift of life is precious; new-born premature babies – like those cared for at the Neonatal Unit at Liverpool Women’s Hospital – need every chance they can to lead a normal life. By supporting the work of the Neonatal Unit, more vulnerable newborns can have access to specialist care and equipment that will improve their chances for a healthy life.” – Camilla Al Fayed
