Amazing  Minnie by Faith McKee

Amazing  Minnie

Minnie sadly died in 2015 aged just 23 days old after she was born with a serious heart defect known as hypoplastic left heart syndrome.

She also had further complications including an oesophageal fistula and tracheomalacia which meant she was unable to breathe unaided, as well as being born with muscles missing from her trachea.

Minnie was transferred to Leeds General infirmary’s neonatal unit within hours of being born and received expert medical care from some of the best medical staff in the country.

Sadly, Minnie died and following her death, Liam and Ami agreed for their daughter’s kidneys to be donated, which made her the first neonatal donor in Yorkshire and one of five in the UK.
