Child Interests

Madiee was born prematurely with the birth defect gastroschisis, she had a very complicated case & her bowel never recovered. After three years in hospital in New Zealand she was transferred to Birmingham Children’s Hospital in the UK for a small bowel transplant as this was her only hope of survival. Eighteen months after arrival in the UK Madiee received her transplant.

Unfortunately Madiee developed serious complications & cancer. Six months of chemotherapy & she was cancer free. It was then decided it was best for Madiee to remain in the UK so that she could be closely monitored by her transplant team. For a few years Madiee remained well but this year her health has deteriorated. The transplanted bowel is not working very well, meaning a life back on TPN & many days feeling rubbish in bed.

Throughout all of this Madiee is the happiest girl & always has a smile on her face.
