13 year old Darcy Hoffman and her mum, Leanne , stayed with The Sick Children's Trust at Scott House whilst she underwent a life changing procedure at Freeman Hospital. Diagnosed with a heart condition known as cardiac dysrhythmia when she was just three weeks old, meaning she had an abnormal heartbeat, Darcy had needed to take copious amounts of medication to keep her healthy up to this point.
