Chain of Hope celebrates and remembers the wonderful work of our Co-Founder Trustee, Dr Rosemary Radley-Smith who passed away recently.
Rosemary was not only passionate about setting up Chain of Hope, but gave every patient her utmost attention both in the UK and overseas during medical missions. We will remember her for her vigour in establishing systems for the charity and dedicating so much time to clinics to see a record number of patients, advising on their health and management of cardiac disease.
She worked with Chain of Hope around the world in many countries including, Egypt , Mozambique, Kenya and Jamaica. Her commitment was unfaltering, and the charity will always remember her as a pillar and Founder Trustee of Chain of Hope. She served from 1995 to 2007 at Chain of Hope and in that time, helped many children suffering from heart disease.
President and Founder of Chain of Hope, Professor Sir Magdi Yacoub in paying tribute said,
Our thoughts are with her family, friends and all the patients she impacted with her kindness and hard work.
