Hearts for Eva – Sharleigh’s story

  • Hearts-for-Eva-2

ABC online has published a 6-min documentary and personal story by bereaved mother Sharleigh Stevenson about her daughter Eva. This touching video also features comments by Gerald Purchase, a clinical psychologist as well as footage and interviews with Eva herself.

At four-years-old Eva was diagnosed with rhabdomyosarcoma. Sharleigh was told there was no cure. They lived in Victorian regional town called Sunraysia. A local man called John Burfitt held a fundraiser called “Hearts for Eva” to raise money for Eva’s cancer treatment. Hearts for Eva became a global phenomenon.
