I want to continue the fundraising work Becca started when she was ill to raise money for the RBH Charity Transplant Appeal to give someone else a chance of life like she had.

Last year I was diagnosed with CFS/ME. Whilst dealing with her illness and treatment Becca took the time to write to me. I wasn't feeling great and my life had totally changed. Receiving Becca's letter meant so much to me. It gave me hope that I would get better and I wasn't the only one who was going through a tough time.

In 2017 my cousin Becca became very unwell and was diagnosed with a very rare form of heart cancer.

A revolutionary new treatment meant that surgeons were able to save her life by replacing her own heart with a Totally Artificial Heart (TAH) which Becca had to carry around with her in a rucksack. Becca was only the second person to leave hospital with a TAH.

After a year of being cancer free Becca was placed on the urgent transplant list to receive a donor heart. In February 2019 she underwent her heart transplant however following post operative complications Becca died.

Please help me raise money to continue their amazing work.
