    Story

    My friends little girl is currently a patient on the heart ward, her name is Evie, she's 7 and the most amazing little girl. She was born with a complex congenital heart disease called hypo-plastic left heart syndrome and has been very unwell. From birth this little one has had a multitude of operations, she never left the hospital until she was 1 and was tube fed until she was 2, at the age of 3 she had reconstructive heart surgery which sadly didn't work and she was placed on the urgent transplant list for the first time. She was critically ill, suffering several strokes and 3 cardiac arrests. However she received the call 11 weeks later that gave her the gift of life. After the op it was touch and go, she needed dialysis due to kidney failure. Evie never gave up, she learned to walk and talk again and with sheer determination started main stream school. In October 2015 her new heart started to fail, she learned to take the 20 plus tablets now needed each day, again with no complaints. In June 2016 after a routine angiogram it was discovered she has a severe artery disease which is unique to transplant patients. Again this little girl started the journey towards transplant whilst still meeting school expectations. In June 2017 Evie started fitting, the hospital checked her heart and she was deemed to ill to go home, she is at risk of a imminent heart attack which she wont get any warning for as during her original transplant the nerves in her chest were cut. Evie is waiting to start all over again with another heart, she has been on the ward for 18 weeks waiting for her gift of life and will be in for many more months recovering.

    Dawn is an amazing mother and friend, she cant work at the moment and has had her wage reduced to half, I want to raise some money to relieve any pressure she may feel, I have nothing but admiration for this woman, working full time to keep a beautiful home and being a single mother to 4 gorgeous kids.  I  don't  want  her  to  stress  over  finances,  this  is  out  of  her  control  and  I  know  how  much  she  would  love  to  have  Evie  home  and  be  going  to  work.  Being  at  the  hospital  is  very  expensive  I  know  this  from  experience.  If  I  can  raise  this  money  I  know  it  will  help.  We  successfully  raised  money  for  the  children  on  the  ward  and  I'm  hoping  as  a  community  we  can pull  together  and  support  this  amazing  family.  I will  be  doing  charity  events  and  raffles  to  also add  to  this.  Thank  you  <3
