Life is a big rollercoaster ride with a lot of ups and downs, but sometimes it just gets too much to take in. The people who are not bothered by the challenges are the ones who are actual survivors. There is much more to learn from this toddler's life story.
She was only 1-year-old when she started battling one of the biggest fights. Harmonie-Rose Allen, who is a still smiling baby who fell ill just 10-days after taking her first steps. Doctors were worried that she would barely survive as she only had 10% chances of survival. It was Meningitis that nearly killed her.
But She made it back from the face of death, even though she lost four of her limbs and the tip of her nose. Now 2-years old, she has adopted a different way of life as she walks around with the help of a standing frame.

Brave Harmonie-Rose Allen was infected with this disease only just ten days after she took her first steps.
Harmonie-Rose woke up one-night coughing and was unable to breathe and the next morning she even turned blue. Following an assessment the doctors thought it was only a normal virus but hours later she became floppy and lethargic when a rash was spotted. Following which her whole body was covered with the purple rash, leaving her parents astound.
Doctors believed that this was one of the worst cases they had seen. The parents Freya Hall and Rose Allen kept their courage by their side and went ahead with the therapy which ultimately saved Harmonie's life, but sadly, took away her legs, arms and the tip of her nose.
The new standing frame is the equipment which is going to help this baby walk for the rest of her life.
With the help of the local community, they were able to afford the standing frame. Her mother believes that Harmonie has a strong character as she has regained her smile.
Harmonie's parents know that their child is special, a survivor. They further plan on to give her a fulfilling life.
