Story

Rosie is a bright, bubbly ten year old girl from Essex with a huge smile and fantastic sense of humour.

She was born a healthy little girl at full term. At two years old, she was diagnosed with Restrictive Cardiomyopathy, a very rare heart muscle disease. Rosie’s only hope of survival was a heart transplant.

At three Rosie suffered a cardiac arrest and was placed on the urgent transplant list on Christmas Eve 2015. In February 2016, Rosie was in end stage heart failure and her only option was an eight hour operation to attach a mechanical heart. Whilst the mechanical heart kept Rosie alive, it sadly also caused two brain bleeds, requiring emergency craniotomies and multiple strokes.

Thanks to an incredibly courageous, selfless family, Rosie received a heart transplant in July 2016. The multiple strokes and bleeds caused severe brain damage, leaving Rosie with bilateral dystonic movement disorder and requiring intensive rehabilitation.

Rosie is working very hard in her privately funded physio and hydrotherapy sessions to get stronger, sit and stand independently. She is also working towards getting an alternative communication device to help her to communicate.

Please donate to enable Rosie to achieve her full potential and enjoy every precious moment that the gift of a new heart has given her.
