Hi, thanks for visiting my page. Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor me and donations will be quickly processed and passed to charities. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this. I really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.

I have been extremely luck to have received 1st class care from Harefield hospital, it's always been a goal to raise money for them and now seems like a more poingiant time then ever. 

Born with cystic fibrosis in 2011 3 weeks after getting married Harefield had me airlifted to there centre where I was placed on life support ecmo. I received my first double lung transplant. Bringing me back to health I enjoyed 2 wonderful years before the devastating news that I had chronic rejection, my rejection was rapid and although I received radiation therapy my new lungs were already ruined beyond repair. Harefield placed me on the list for a second transplant and I was lucky to receive my call the next day. 

3 years of absolutely amazing health I am now in chronic rejection again. I am in a extremely strong place and we are extremely hopeful radiation will work this time and I will stabalise. If you wish to help me fundraise so others can receive the first class treatment I have then please feel free to donate or possibly run a event. It would be great if all the funds could come into this virgin money page so we can know the total at the end. 

Thank you everyone for your ongoing support. Let's do this!

Update 15/11/16 - After months of treatment for my Chronic rejection, in September I was hit hard with Pneumonia, this was a extremely hard battle but unfortunately infection is part and parcel of having chronic rejection. I spent 2 days in ITU in Harefield and they worked extremely hard to get me as well as possible and rebuild my strength. Now in November I'm on my way home unfortunately for the last chapter of my story. I'm going to spend however long I have left with my family enjoying my time. Please read this blog for more information http://kirstie-2ndchanceatlife.blogspot.co.uk/2016/11/final-chapter.html?m=1

One of my Goals in the time I have left is to raise £10000.00 or even more Harefield Hospital. There care has been exceptional including the care in getting me home tonne with my loved ones in this time. Raising this money is one way I can show my gratitude for that and hopefully help others to have these chances.
