Kirsty Jones Books & Biography
Hannah Jones loved Zac Efron, playing on her Nintendo DS and anything pink. She was just like any other twelve-year-old girl, except that she had already faced not one but two life-threatening illnesses: diagnosed first with leukaemia aged four, the drugs given to treat her cancer caused a rare side effect and damaged her heart. Because of the risks involved, Hannah initially refused a heart transplant but two years later changed her mind as she prepared to celebrate a birthday doctors had never thought she'd see. In August 2009, Hannah was successfully given a new heart at Great Ormond Street Hospital and has since returned home to be with her family.
Kirsty Jones, Hannah’s mother, is a trained nurse. She and her husband Andrew have tirelessly supported Hannah’s decisions and live with their four children on their farm in Herefordshire.
