Ava is currently in the Royal Brompton Hospital intensive care.
Ava has an extremely dangerous heart condition called Myocarditis & Myocardpathy which is an infection of the heart which causes a lot of other complications. she is only tiny especially being born premature with her twin brother, but she is a true fighter and we know she can pull through this illness and make a full recovery.
