The Daring to Dream Spring Ball & Auction hosted by Amy Penn

Amy is 21 years old; she was born with congenital heart disease, meaning she has been through loads of treatment in her life.

2019, in particular, was really tough for her with over 100 nights in hospital, 5 major operations and two stays in Intensive Care. 2020 has seen more overnight stays and surgical interventions.

Amy totally understands how isolating these long hospital stays are, even more so for young people, no matter how kind the staff and how supportive her family.

Her own experiences have inspired her to organise the Daring to Dream Spring Ball & Auction, specifically to raise funds to support the emotional health and well-being of young cardiac patients in University Hospital of Wales.

For many chronically people like Amy, long inpatient stays in hospital are just another thing we have to put up with to survive. So, making them as comfortable, comforting, and normal as possible is particularly important.
