Charlotte has Harmonie in her heart : October 2014

11 month old Harmonie-Rose of Bath, England was eventually rushed to Bristol Children's Hospital with meningococcal B - the same strain of the deadly disease that Charlotte contracted when she was 7 months old - after previously being sent home from a local hospital.

Facing multiple limb amputations, little Harmonie-Rose's story reached Charlotte in New Zealand and she was moved to write to the family offering her support and best wishes.

Charlotte wrote on the family's Facebook support page Hope 4 Harmonie;

"I'm a quad amputee after I got meningococcal B when I was seven months old. I'm almost 11 now and I am doing ok. I just wanted to say I am thinking about you Harmonie-Rose and I know you will be awesome. I read that your Dad said you were a fighter and I was too. Stay strong Princess. Nub hugs."

Bath Chronicle UK prints Charlotte's inspirational story

Hoping to offer Harmonie-Rose's family some timely inspiration and support, Charlotte's Dad, Perry emailed their local newspaper to share with them Charlotte's own journey to let them know there can be a rewarding life without limbs.

"We didn't have any contact details for Harmonie-Rose's family and we didn't want to intrude on them in these difficult days they face. With the help of the Bath Chronicle we were able to reach out to the family and their community to give them hope for their wee girl."
