Extraordinaries #3 Rosie

Ordinary Athlete’s extraordinaries feature this week is Rosie.

Rosie is a proud member of She Runs Cardiff, you can spot her running by the big smile on her face. Collecting medal after medal is amazing in itself but Rosie is about to do something incredible in a different way.

She is soon to undergo surgery to donate one of her kidneys to her best friend. In Rosie‘s words:

’I don’t think anything can ever prepare you for the feeling of knowing you are giving your friend a chance at life, a chance to see her graduate university, a chance to see her watching her kids grow up.

We don’t take days for granted anymore as we’ve seen just how precious life can be. There’s been so many times when we didn’t think we’d ever get this far but we kept the faith and we kept pushing on together.

We are right with you, thinking of you both!
