Meet Dotti

Dotti, six weeks

When I grow up…
My Mum thinks that I will probably rule the world in some way.

Born at just 26 weeks gestation, and weighing less than 500 grams, Dotti Hogan is fondly known by her family as a unicorn. After the loss of her twin sister Daphne at birth, Dotti is not only surviving, she’s thriving. Dotti arrived at the RCH at just four days old, where she was quickly transferred to Butterfly, the Newborn Intensive Care Unit. Since then, Dotti has undergone three surgeries, as well as two laser surgeries on her eyes. Both Dotti and her mum Melissa are currently being supported by the expert teams on Butterfly. She will stay there until she is strong enough to go home, where her two very eager big sisters, Daisy and Delilah, will be waiting to greet her at the door.
