Flynn is only one and has already lost a kidney through complications. Flynn’s family live in Kinross, though are currently spending most days and nights at PMH and they said that the generosity of the choir was overwhelming and that the funds raised will help with all the costs associated with having to be at the hospital every day and Flynn’s ongoing care.

Jess Garrett has recently moved into her own house to be more independent and she travels from Vic park to sing each Wednesday. She overcame her nerves to deliver a very powerful message about how it feels to have an Acquired Brain Injury and the hard work needed to regain skills such as walking, talking and budgeting. She urged parents to always seek medical attention so that infection can be dealt with quickly as an unattended ear infection caused her disabilities.
