STOVER School was awash with colour this afternoon, as Lottie Bryon-Edmond and her peers took on a colour run to raise money for a memorial for organ donors at Torbay Hospital.
At just five weeks old, Lottie Bryon-Edmond defied all odds and became the youngest ever recipient of a liver transplant, after she was born seven weeks premature and was diagnosed with neonatal hemochromatosis – a rare liver condition causing an excess of iron in the body.
Now in year six, Lottie is looking to give back to those who saved her life, by raising money for the construction of a memorial for organ donors.
Earlier this year, Lottie was made an honorary director of Torbay and South Devon NHS Trust at the age of 11.
She was given the position for her ‘commitment to raising awareness of organ donation and recognising the life-saving and life-changing contributions of organ donors and their families.’
