Little Georgie Marsden inspiring those around her
She’s not even one yet, but gorgeous little Georgie Marsden is already inspiring those around her.
At 20 weeks gestation, Georgie was diagnosed with bilateral talipes (club feet). From just two weeks old, she underwent a total of 19 serial casts and surgery before she could finally go home with parents, Scott and Susie.
After receiving extensive care at Monash Children’s Hospital, Georgie’s feet are now fully corrected. She still wears her ponseti brace and will do so for 14 hours a day until she is four years old, but she’s starting to stand up and is getting ready for those all-important first steps!
Scott and Susie are familiar faces here at Monash Children’s Hospital now, and to say thank you they’re taking part in the 2017 Walk for Monash Children’s Hospital. They have already raised an amazing $900 for the March 5 event, demonstrating their sincere appreciation to our staff.
