Hospital stay now child’s play
Four area on Tuesday. Alexey first attended PMH after he had a stroke when he was just six weeks old.
“At the same time they discovered he had a large intra-abdominal tumour,” his mother Anna said.
“He spent time in intensive care postsurgery and then in the infant ward.” Alexey became a regular at PMH. “We are lucky to have him alive after the stroke. He had a severe seizure and required brain surgery,” Ms Ulupov said.
She said it was wonderful for children at the hospital to have access to a bright and fun recreation area.
Hospital chief executive Frank Daly praised the work of the Foundation.
“The Foundation has been supporting Megazone for many years and it is great they will be involved in running Fun On Four here,” he said.
“There’s a music room, outdoor play area, cinema, Radio Lollipop – lots of activities for kids. It will be open seven days a week and for extended hours.
“Megazone was open Mondays to Fridays and for less time… there’s something here for young kids and for older kids, up to the adolescents.”
Mr Daly said PCHF’s work enabled the new fun area to be bigger, better and open more often and would help families using the clinics on-site.
“This is a great family-friendly space. Parents will be able to come in, get better parking, register that they’ve arrived for an appointment and then come to wait here in Fun On Four,” he said.
