"Thanks to Leeds Children's Hospital, Oona now has her whole life ahead of her."

Oona received life-saving treatment at Leeds Children

Oona’s mum, Rachel, has lived through every parent’s worst nightmare. In a routine pregnancy scan, she was told her unborn daughter’s kidneys would fail. That she wouldn’t live longer than a few days.

But then, on day five, Rachel recalls a sudden, wonderful glimmer of hope: "Oona had a massive wee – out of the blue!" 

Her kidneys were showing signs of improvement; she was too small for dialysis, but with each day that passed there were signs she’d survive – with the help of a transplant.

At just two years old, Oona was finally big enough for this transplant. The safe hands of Dr Masood, a leading surgeon at Leeds Children’s Hospital, skillfully transferred a kidney from Oona’s Dad to Oona. A remarkable procedure that saved this little one’s life.

Kind people like you who leave gifts in their Wills make a huge difference to what Leeds Hospitals can provide patients - and pay for cutting-edge equipment for doctors, nurses and care teams – equipment like telestration platforms that allow experienced surgeons like Dr Masood to assist other specialist clinicians in complex surgeries. And it helps to provide fun resources like a basketball hoop for children like Oona on the Kidney ward.
