A MUM-OF-FOUR is spending her 30th birthday raising money for the hospital who helped save the life of her newborn son.
Sarah Broughton, aged 29, of Northway, Orford, has organised a fun day at the Cinnamon Brow Farm Club on Saturday, the same day she reaches the milestone.
The full time mum is supporting Ronald Mcdonald House, at Alder Hey Hospital, after Frazer was rushed after turning blue.
A scan revealed a heart defect that required open heart surgery.
Sarah said: “We didn’t know anything about the defect during the pregnancy.
“Then Frazer collapsed and was taken to hospital.
“It was a nightmare. We were there for two weeks while Frazer had the operation.
“We wouldn’t have been able to do it without Mcdonald House.
“They provided us with a room in the hospital so we could sleep there, and someone could be with Frazer all the time.
“It was a terrible time but we would have been lost without them.”
Frazer, who was born in January last year, is now happy and healthy at home, but may need future surgery.
Sarah, who gave birth to fourth son Eric in January this year, and partner Nick, aged 30, are now running the fun day.
It takes place at the farm club on Perth Close from 1pm to 6pm.
There will be a table top sale, raffle, bouncy castle, face painting and games.
All money raised is going to Mcdonald House.
Sarah added: “You’d normally go out and get drunk for your birthday, but I’ve been pregnant for the last two years.
“I wanted to do something different, and I’m not fit enough to do a run, so I thought I’d do this fun day instead.”
