Well the time has come for Zara's next heart surgery. Her first open heart surgery.

This surgery is called the Glenn Procedure and it will effectively change her heart "plumbing" so that her heart doesn't have to work so hard to circulate the blood around her body.

We are getting more and more anxious about it as it gets closer. Even more so with the pandemic going on at the moment. We know we will need to call on HeartKids to help us through this time.

Sweetheart Day is HeartKids annual flagship event held on February 14 - International Congenital Heart Defect Awareness Day (aka Valentine’s Day). Zara will likely be in hospital recovering from surgery this Sweetheart Day.

Please help spread the word by sharing this page, or donating to this page. Any amount helps and sharing helps raise awareness for those 8 babies a day born with a heart defect. That is one every 3 hours when a families lives change in a heartbeat.

Sadly 4 young lives are lost to CHD each week. Sweetheart Day is your chance to join in the fight against this disease.

Where do your donations go?
As demand for CHD support services grows, HeartKids is hoping to continue to expand its services for families by continuing its 1800 Helpline, parent education programs, family financial assistance, and in-hospital support initiatives which includes its unique heart beads program.
