Rheanna is receiving our Best Buddy Sibling Award Today!
01 September 2021
Kelly got in touch with us to nominate her fantastic daughter, Rheanna (9), for our Best Buddy Sibling Award!
Rheanna has been an amazing big sister to Isla-Rose and was so brave during her baby sister's stay at St Michael's Hospital in Bristol.
"On Christmas morning 2019, our little Christmas miracle, Isla-Rose, came into the world 6 weeks early.
Isla-Rose was born with a complex, rare condition called cloacal malformation.
Our first 6 weeks in the neonatal unit were really hard as Isla-Rose got very sick throughout.
She had sepsis, E.coli, was on and off life support and had several trips to theatre.
Rheanna was our rock at this time.
It was a blessing that she could be with us in the unit and she had a lot to do with Isla-Rose's care.
Rheanna was so hands-on with caring for her sister. She always wanted to empty her colostomy bag, change her nappy and bedding and feed her through her NG tube.
She would also read Isla-Rose stories and tell her what she had been up to."
What a well-deserved nomination! Rheanna, you were so brave during such a scary time. Isla-Rose is so lucky to have a strong big sister to help look after her.
Your certificate and goodies are on the way to you!
