Story

We are trying to raise money to help towards the £37,000 Bella Rose needs for her 2nd lot of Heart surgery. We would be so grateful if you could help make a difference by leaving as little as £2. Just type in any amount that you can spare. Thank you so much.
Here’s a little bit about this baby girl and why we are doing this.
Bella-Rose was born at 24 weeks weighing a tiny 660g at St Thomas’s hospital in London on the 18/06/2017. She’s had a very rough journey so far and is a miracle to be alive.
Life for Bella-Rose is harder than for a baby without her health problems. She’s struggling to put on any weight and is still only just over 13lb at 17 months old because she’s struggling so much with the large hole in her heart that’s growing with her heart. She uses all her energy keeping her heart working and doesn’t have any calories left to gain weight.
Having this surgery sooner rather than later will mean Bella Rose will be able to thrive and hopefully get bigger and stronger and be able to breath better and come off her oxygen .
She’s needed resuscitating hundreds of times and chest compressions, has received 2 lots of life threatening surgery for her heart and stomach and other health issues but yet always manages to smile despite having more than her fair share of problems.
Bella-Roses stomach doesn’t work and having to be 24hr pump fed through her J peg via her small intestine ( gut ).Bella-Rose has never had the opportunity to try a bottle or latch onto the breast and even now at 12 months old she can’t even taste food. She’s also on oxygen at home and has medication 8 times a day.
Her milk intake via her Peg can't be increased because she can only tolerate a small amount of milk.
Her family try their best to make life as normal as they can and wouldn’t change her for the world but she really does need this surgery.
Thank you for reading about Bella-Rose's journey. Leaving £2 would really help and make a big difference to her quality of life.
