Olive's story. Our beautiful daughter Olive was born on 7th June 2014 with a very complex heart condition, sadly too complex even for the team at Great Ormond Street Hospital to fix. After two 9-hour open-heart procedures in the space of a week, and another week of being fully supported on ECMO, our brave little girl passed away in our arms on 22nd July 2014, only 6 weeks after she was born.
Clare and I are determined that everything we do in Olive's memory will help other sick children and their families. For this reason we have chosen to support Great Ormond Street Hospital – specifically funding break-through heart research projects and contributing to further advance the care of all GOSH patients and families.
Since Olive's passing, we have been asked many times 'what can we do to help?', in response to this we would welcome your ideas and participation in fundraising events or simply donate what you can to continue to grow Olive's Fund – this will enable us to contribute to projects and equipment at GOSH. All for you Olive xMAKE A DONATION
