Donation of enteral feeding pumps

Dear Stephen,

I’m writing firstly to let you know that all the enteral feeding pumps and bags were received as arranged, and are now appropriately labelled indicating they are from “Kids Like Brett”, and are being used.

Secondly, I would like to tell you how much the Hospital appreciates the work you have done in obtaining these feeding pumps. As I think I told you, we are now using this method of feeding more than previously and this has, in many children, replaced total parenteral nutrition by feeding through the veins. This has made a huge difference to the treatment of many children, especially oncology ones, as the risks of infection are greatly diminished.

Thank you once again for all your help.

Best wishes,

Peter G Procopis, Executive Director
