Patient’s story makes BBC London

BBC London have run a story about the family of Ammi Fagan, a patient at the RHN who recently passed away, launching a fundraising appeal in his memory.

Ammi, 23, fell ill on 5 July 2020 after a brain aneurysm haemorrhaged and he was left in a prolonged disorder of consciousness.

“Ammi fought hard and endured many operations, complications and infections. In total he had 17 operations and handled every hurdle as a true warrior,” said Ammi’s sister, Miriam Fagan.

“Sadly, on the 22 June 2021, Ammi was tired and he peacefully passed away surrounded by his family and friends. Although it is a terribly sad time we find peace that Ammi is no longer suffering and is in no more pain” said Miriam.

“The staff on Devonshire and Glynn Ward at the hospital were all amazing and in particular Ward Manager Crispina, Ammi’s keyworker Delia, Dr Andrew Hanrahan and Father Geoff. They supported Ammi and our family throughout and we will forever be grateful towards them”.
