Elle Morris, 10 wishes, going to Santaland

Courageous Nantwich schoolgirl Elle Morris, who underwent a double lung transplant while fighting cystic fibrosis, has died.

The tragic news emerged just days after her heartbroken mum Becky revealed that specialists could not find a way to cure an infection she was suffering.

Brave Elle, of Wrenbury Road, Aston, who would have turned 12 later this month, sparked nationwide coverage when she and mum Becky launched the “Elle’s Wishes” campaign.

It raised huge awareness of the cystic fibrosis condition which she suffered.

Her death was announced on the Elle’s Wishes Facebook page today (January 3).

“It is with heavy hearts we need to let you know our incredibly brave and beautiful Elle passed away in the early hours of Wednesday 3rd January,” it said.

“She died peacefully in the arms of her Mummy and Daddy with her family and friends close by.

“Our immense pride in her strength and dignity is helping us through these painful days.

“We can’t thank enough the medical teams who have looked after her with such love and care all the way through until the end which was in true Elle style, when she was ready.

“Fly high our beautiful brave warrior we will always keep you with us, your inspiration and love for life is a memory we will cherish forever.

“We know many would like to pay their respects to the family.”

People are invited to leave messages of support on the Facebook page to her parents Becky and Ian and sister Cara.

“Of course, it goes without saying to please give the family some time and space to come to terms with their loss,” the message added.

Hundreds of messages of support and tributes have been paid to the youngster in the first few hours since the announcement.

Elle had been due to start at Brine Leas High School in September, but complications after her transplant back in February 2017 meant she was unable to attend.

Specialists at Great Ormond Street Hospital did everything they could to try and save her but announced a few days ago that they had run out of options.

Funeral details will be posted onto the page in due course.
