Life changes in a heartbeat for families impacted by congenital heart disease
There are certain things in life that one can’t prepare for, such as the moment a parent is told their newborn has been diagnosed with congenital heart disease. Suddenly a momentous occasion quickly turns to sadness and things change in a heartbeat.
This February we are raising awareness of the impact that congenital or childhood acquired heart disease has on families.
