At 16 years old, I was referred to the Royal Brompton in London by the Royal Glamorgan Hospital and I was put on ECMO after suffering from severe septic shock which caused multi-organ failure caused by sepsis.

ECMO replaces the function of a patient’s heart or lungs, allowing them to rest while they’re being diagnosed or treated. For many patients, it’s used as a “last resort” where all other options have been exhausted.

Your donations will help purchase vital ECMO units for Royal Brompton’s ECMO team to help them save more lives.
