Rio’s Legacy
In light of Rio's Journey, Rio's Legacy has been designed in efforts to start a charity in his honour. Psalm 139: 13 - 16 speaks of how the Lord creates individuals uniquely to fulfil their own destiny.
With this as a beautiful reminder, the foundation “Rio” will strive to hold true this scripture and help those most in need…because you were fearfully and wonderfully made.
Rio’s legacy / vision will be to assist and provide care, improved facilities’ and support to and for children and their families who have been diagnosed with a life limited disease.
As such there will be 3 main areas (as a starting point) that money raised will be used in order to maintain the charities vision and see Rio’s legacy help those most in need:

1. Upgrade / Improve the ICU Hostel rooms for parents with children in the intensive care unit at the Sydney Children’s Hospital, Randwick NSW Australia ($150,000). The ICU become Rio’s second home with over 42 days spent in hospital, 32 of them were in ICU. The hostel rooms were great for us to use in order to be close when needed for Rio…

2. Support the vision and wonderful work of The Bear Cottage and its great team in Manly NSW Australia ($250,000). This great place provided us with and many other families (since 2001) support, respite and end of life care for children with life limiting illnesses. In the toughest of times it is a truly remarkable place.

3. Plan, develop and build Rio’s Lodge. Rio’s Lodge will be designed to assist and support families and their children who have been diagnosed with rare conditions which are life limiting. In efforts to support those affected during the most difficult time, Rio’s Lodge will be used to showcase the best of the best to those in need ($1 Million as a start)

My family and I cannot thank everyone for all the tremendous love, support, prayers and generosity we have been showered with. The love unconditionally displayed for Rio is truly unbelievable and this in itself was a reflection of the impact our beautiful boy has had on so many hearts. To everyone who has given of themselves, their time, their finances, we appreciate you, we love you and we thank you. Rio would be so proud!
As a result, Rio’s Legacy and charity has been put together due to the love and affection he exemplified and showed his world, and received in return, if only for a short period of time. We would be so lucky if through Rio’s journey we were able to help those in need and offer a gift of hope…because like Rio everyone child is so fearfully and wonderfully made.

Thank you for your donations and support.
