Hallmark Channel actress Mamie Laverock is on life support following what her family says was a five-story fall on May 26, 2024, two weeks after a medical emergency led to her hospitalization in Vancouver.

Laverock, 19, is best known for her award-winning role as Rosaleen Sullivan on Hallmark’s long-running series “When Calls The Heart” (WCTH). As Rosaleen — the daughter of Molly Sullivan, played by series regular Johannah Newmarch — Laverock appeared in the show’s first season in early 2014 and returned as a young adult in 2023 for season 10. She also appeared in 2018’s “Wedding of Dreams” with Debbie Gibson, Robert Gant and Pascale Hutton.

On May 14, Nicole and Rob Compton — Laverock’s mom and stepfather from Vancouver, British Columbia — posted a GoFundMe campaign indicating she was “alive and is showing signs of improvement” following a “medical emergency.” They requested financial help so they could be with Laverock daily during an extended hospitalization.

But an update on the GoFundMe campaign reported that an incident at the hospital on May 26 resulted in their Laverock suffering “life threatening injuries.”

When the Comptons initially posted their GoFundMe campaign in mid-May, the page explained that on May 11, Nicole “traveled to Winnipeg to help Mamie, who was having a medical emergency.”

“Nicole was able to get there in time to save her life,” they wrote. “Then got her to a hospital in Winnipeg. Mamie has since been transferred to Hospital here in Vancouver. Her recovery is unclear at this time but she is alive and is showing signs of improvement.”

At the time, the family hoped to raise $2,000 in donations to help them “go every day to support her,” adding that “any contributions would help us be by her side” and that her hospitalization could last “upwards of a month or more.” Family, friends and fans surpassed the goal within days of their posting.

Just before 5 a.m. on May 18, Laverock shared someone’s post about the GoFundMe campaign on her Facebook account. About five minutes later, she posted three photos of herself swimming and smiling with her two younger sisters.

“April 28 Kona, Hawaii,” she wrote, adding, “Such a nice time together.”

But just over a week after her Facebook posts, Laverock’s family updated their GoFundMe page, writing, “We are deeply saddened to report that on May 26th, Mamie, who has been in intensive treatment for the past two weeks, was escorted out of a secure unit of the hospital and taken up to a balcony walkway from which she fell five stories. She sustained life threatening injuries, has undergone multiple extensive surgeries, and is currently on life support.”

The Comptons ended their note, “We are all devastated, in shock, at this intensely difficult time.”

In light of the tragedy, they also increased their fundraising goal to $10,000, which was exceeded within hours as the news of Laverock’s condition began to spread.

Some of Laverock’s Hallmark co-stars shared their concern on social media and encouraged fans to donate to the GoFundMe campaign if they were able.

Laverock’s TV mom, Newmarch, shared screenshots” from the Compton’s GoFundMe and posted about the “tragic and horrible turn of events on May 26th.”

“I love this wonderful family so much, and my heart is broken,” Newmarch wrote. “Such a devastating time for them and all who care deeply for sweet Mamie. Please help if you can. They need all the support they can get to make it through this nightmare. Thank you. ♥️🙏”

WCTH star Erin Krakow posted the campaign on Instagram, too, and wrote, “I just donated. If you have the means to do so, I hope you will too.”

Another WCTH co-star, Loretta Walsh, also shared the campaign on Instagram and wrote, “Please donate and share if you can. Mamie and her family need our support. Link in bio. Thank you ❤️”

In 2018, shortly after she co-starred and sang in Gibson’s “Wedding of Dreams,” Laverock told the My Devotional Thoughts blog how grateful she was for Hearties’ ongoing support since she first appeared on the show.

She was quoted as saying, “Wow, the Hearties! I love them all so much. They have done oh so much for me, and I thank them truly. Over the years, I have kept in touch with this amazing family that I now have, and that is one of the other reasons why ‘When Calls the Heart’ has had such a positive effect on my life and always will.”

As recently as March 26, Newmarch and Laverock reunited for a joint Zoom interview on the “Heart to Hearties” podcast, during which they shared their love and admiration for each other.
