As a family, we recognise the contribution the Royal Brompton Hospital had in helping our beloved wife and mother, even though her diagnosed condition was irreversible. Andrea always held the staff in the highest regard and although her life was too short, the care of the Royal Brompton Hospital likely gave us a chance to spend more time with her than we would otherwise have been able to.

The month of February marks Andreas birthday and this is the first since her passing. In memory of her we would like to not only pass on donations others have already given us but also raise some further funds in her name to help the hospital provide the same care to others.
