Romeo was born with a rare form of CHD called Tetralogy of Fallot, affecting 1 in 3000 babies. At 4 months old he had open heart surgery to correct this however since then he has not thrived. At 10 months old and after suffering four cardiac arrests; Romeo was diagnosed with an even rarer heart condition which affects less than 1 in a million babies called Restrictive Cardiomyopathy.
The only cure for this is a heart transplant, unfortunately Romeo was not deemed suitable for this and after months in intensive care came home under palliative care for 5 months.
He put up the biggest and bravest fight throughout his life but sadly grew his angel wings early hours on the 12th of October 2021.
This page documents his journey throughout his life.
In loving memory of Romeo Jazz Francis 05/04/19 – 12/10/21 ♥️
