Daisy’s niece Sienna was born with a heart defect at St Thomas’ Hospital. She was transferred to Evelina London for open-heart surgery and sadly died after three weeks. This had a profound impact on Daisy.

'Rather than being depressed I wanted to completely change my attitude and do something major in her memory,' Daisy said.

Daisy decided to challenge herself in a major way by running the Royal Parks Half Marathon and honouring the life of her niece Sienna.

Daisy said that Evelina London took great care of Sienna. They provided a comfortable environment which made the family feel at home. The doctors went above and beyond for Sienna.
