Hope is the companion of power and the mother of success,
For those of us who hope strongest have within us the gift of miracles.
The Life’s Little Treasures Foundation (LLTF) is a charity which is dedicated to providing support, friendship information and assistance to families of children born prematurely & sick.
It was founded by parents who themselves have had a premature or sick baby and so truly understand the challenges that these babies and their families face. Today it is one of Australia’s leading charities, supporting these families. LLTF services are available in the hospital (neonatal and special care units) and in the community when families come home.
