Child Interests

Maisie is 14 now and loves make up and fashion.
Her favourite colours are pink and rose gold.


Maisie was ventilated at birth. She received 3 blood transfusions in her first day of life, her jaundice levels were 700 (usually 45). Maisie continued to receive blood transfusions every 3 weeks due to her haemoglobin dropping drastically.

Maisie has many operations including a Hickman line and Portercath inserted into her chest and 2 bone marrow aspirations. Maisie has had a total of 150 blood transfusions to date. She has also had her spleen and gall bladder removed.

Maisie is the 40th person in the UK to be diagnosed with pyruvate kinase deficiency. The illness is so rare that it took doctors 14 months to find a diagnosis.
