Published

on

A Mum has issued an urgent Europe-wide appeal to find a heart transplant for her six-week-old baby. Please help by sharing this article in hope the right person spots it and is able to help save the life of baby Charlie

Charlie Douthwaite is believed to be the youngest person in the UK waiting for a transplant.

Charlie was born with half a heart because he was born with hypoplastic left heart syndrome, meaning the left side of his heart is underdeveloped.

His mum Tracie Wright has issued an urgent appeal to help find it “such an amazing gift to be able to offer someone”.

“It’s a priceless gift that can never, ever be repaid. It would just mean the world to me to receive that for Charlie,” she said.

“I’m in total desperation and it’s probably a long shot but I’ll try anything to try and help my baby. My baby boy needs a heart. being on the transplant list is an awful place to be in knowing another child loses their life!

“someone loses their pride and joy in order for you to receive a heart or organ it’s truly heartbreaking. It’s such an amazing gift to be able to offer someone.

“And I’d like to think it would offer someone great comfort knowing their beautiful baby never dies and lives on and helped in a way that can’t ever be described.

“I want to try and get this message as far and wide as I possibly can (especially the eu) in order to try and help my baby. I can’t describe what Charlie means to us all he’s so precious so beautiful and so brave and deserves a chance at life”

The appeal has been made in the hope that a family who are grieving the loss of their child may be in a position to help.

Published

on

Police Hour is looking to help support the family of Kelly Franklin who was murdered in Hartlepool, Having personally known Kelly as a wonderful person we would like to raise some money to help support her children.

It was very tragic and saddening that we reported the murder of Kelly, but to find out within hours this was the Kelly we knew, the Kelly that had a heart of gold and the Kelly that ensured other peoples children never went without, we really had to try and do something to help and support her children.

After Kelly Franklin was murdered she was the mum of three wonderful children who have been left heartbroken.

Police Hour has set up a JustGiving Appeal to help support the three young children following the tragic murder of their mum.

Kelly Franklin who sadly died on Friday 3rd August on Oxford Road in Hartlepool was such a loving, caring, beautiful young mother of three whose life has been tragically cut short.

Kelly was always bursting with life, happiness and joy and you would not bump into her without seeing a beautiful smile on her face. She was loved by so many and always had time for others.

Her three beautiful children were her most treasured things in her life and they are all in complete shock and horror that their mother’s life has been taken away from them and us so suddenly.

It is so difficult to find the words to describe how the family feels at this moment.

If you would like to support the appeal please click here to donate. Thank you for your support.
