Parents launch community network in memory of baby girl


A couple whose two-month-old baby girl died due to a rare heart defect have revealed their mission to preserve her memory, by launching a community network in her name to help other bereaved parents. When their daughter, Harper, was diagnosed with the congenital heart condition Tetralogy of Fallot while still in the womb, Ellie Dixon, 26, and Nick Hall, 35, were told she should live a normal life after surgery - giving them hope, as she underwent four major operations in her first few weeks of life. After she survived a major cardiac incident following her first open heart surgery, when they were advised to say goodbye, the couple were feeling so confident that Harper had turned a corner that on July 3 2019 Ellie went home from the hospital for the first time since her birth.
