I am raising money for my Auntie to give to Guys and St Thomas's hospital in London after saving her life. My Auntie had no idea she was so ill and when she struggled to climb the stairs without being out of breath, she knew something was wrong. She is only 54, a healthy woman and within hours a scan at her local hospital showed she had a 12cm aneurysm which could burst at any time and kill her and a leaking heart valve. Within hours she was rushed to St Thomas' hospital and had emergency heart surgery to save her life. Surgeons were suprised how she had survived living with these serious problems and to this day after checking what they removed cannot believe she was walking around unaware of what was happening. Doctors say it is likely she had this for many years and yet she had no idea.
Without the Surgeons quick work, my Auntie may not be alive today and so we want to raise money for exactly that reason, possibly saving my Auntie's life. My Auntie is now home but it will be months before she is back to her usual self as still in a lot of pain and struggling to get around.
She has started to bake cakes to sell, even though she is still in a lot of pain and so I really want to help her out by raising money. All money WILL 100% be given to my Auntie and WILL then be given to the hospital that saved her life. We cannot thank them enough. This hospital is really deserving of every single penny. It would be great to suprise her with the money we have raised.
The fact that you would be helping the hospital to save other peoples lives would mean a lot. If anyone wants more details, please feel free to ask. I want to raise as much as I can for her.
Please help. x
