Why is Harmonie-Rose Allen a Pride of Britain winner?

Harmonie-Rose was just 10 months old when she first fell ill. Her limbs turned black and doctors were forced to amputate after meningitis damaged her legs, arms and the tip of her nose.

Even then Harmonie-Rose was only given a 10% chance of survival.
