But just as the family was beginning to feel optimistic about Mamie's chances for a full recovery, another tragedy struck.

“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,” her loved ones wrote.

“She sustained life-threatening injuries, has undergone multiple extensive surgeries, and is currently on life support,” they added.

“A devastating time for all who care for Mamie. Please help if you can,” she added, along with a link to the GoFundMe page.

Laverock has played Rosaleen on When Calls the Heart since the show began.

Rosaleen is the daughter of Molly, and she returned on When Calls the Heart Season 10 Episode 7 to share news about nursing school.

Her real journey was to aid in Henry Gowan's redemption arc, as she was devastated and blamed him for the mining disaster that took her father and many other men in Coal Valley, now Hope Valley.

Rosaleen didn't trust that Henry had changed, and it took a while for them to discover common ground, but she opened her heart to forgiveness.

The GoFundMe for the teen actress has already exceeded its goal, raising nearly $15,000 Canadian.

TV Shows Should Make Stars, Not Depend On Them
