Mamie Laverock, known for her role as Rosaleen Sullivan in Hallmark Channel's series When Calls the Heart, is on life support after suffering from a tragic fall.

On May 26, the 19-year-old actress fell from a five-storey balcony at a hospital in Vancouver, where she was undergoing treatment for an undisclosed medical emergency.

Per her family's GoFundMe campaign, the incident happened two weeks after she had been transferred from a hospital in Winnipeg, where her mother Nicole Compton rushed to her side "in time to save her life" after suffering from said medical emergency on May 11.

In the fundraiser, which was first launched on May 14, Mamie's parents first explained: "On Saturday May 11th, 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 added: "Her recovery is unclear at this time but she is alive and is showing signs of improvement," noting: "We are trying to go every day to support her. Any contributions would help us be by her side. But this could be upwards of a month or more."

Nicole and her husband Rob Compton have since added the heartbreaking update that Mamie suffered from the fall after two weeks of "intensive treatment."

As of May 28, the fundraiser has raised $14,849 CAD (approximately $10,879 US dollars) of its $10,000 CAD goal across 229 donations, including a $1,500 anonymous donation.

Erin Krakow, who stars in When Calls the Heart as Elizabeth Thatcher, was among Mamie's co-stars to share the GoFundMe with her followers, writing in a post: "I just donated. If you have the means to do so, I hope you will too," along with photos of the two of them on set when Mamie was younger.

Johannah Newmarch, who stars as Mamie's on-screen mother Molly Sullivan, also wrote on X, formerly known as Twitter: "I love this family, my heart is broken. A devastating time for all who care for Mamie. Please help if you can. They need all the support they can get to make it through this."

Mamie first joined When Calls the Heart as a recurring character, nursing student Rosaleen, for the first two seasons of the period family drama, which first premiered in 2014; she later reprised her role last year for its milestone 10th season.
