Rosh Keegan is raising funds in memory of her daughter Ani who died from Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) on 17th October 2002. 



With the support from Hand on Heart Charity Rosh is aiming to raise enough funds in the first instance to make Ani's school and 6 others Heart Safe by providing each school with a defibrillator and training.

Rosh Keegan Comments:

" Ani was 14 years old, a vibrant and passionate member of Camden School for Girls in London. (CSG) A defibrillator would have increased her chances of survival by 74%.........I am passionate about getting defibrillators in to ALL schools, it's been 13 years since her death and nothing has changed to prevent this happening again! Therefore in memory of my daughter's time at CSG, I am raising funds to purchase defibrillators and training for the school and 6 other nominated Camden Schools."

Those schools are, Acland Burghley, Eleanor Palmer, Parliament Hill, William Ellis, La Sante Union and King's Cross Academy. Each school will in turn raise funds to buy a defibrillator for another school and so on, the intention being that the project will roll on until all schools in Camden are heart safe, then all schools in Islington, Hackney etc Rosh has a big vision for her campaigning with Hand on Heart in Ani's memory.

Over £3500 has already been raised via just giving and Rosh has organised an event at Camden School for girls on the 11th June to continue her efforts.

The Right Honourable Baroness Jowell gives her support and comments:

"Hand on Heart is a wonderful initiative that will save lives. This project is particularly poignant as it was prompted by Rosh's family's tragic loss in Ani's death. I am delighted to support it particularly as, when I was Public Health Minister I started the programme of defibrillators in public places.
Congratulations on this invaluable asset for young people's health."
