Sweetheart Day - Gallina is fundraising for
As some of you may know, our son Leonardo was born last April with a congenital heart condition. Since his birth he has had two surgeries, including open heart surgery in August. Our prayers were answered as he has recovered well and is thriving. He is now a happy and bubbly 9 month old baby. There are still many tough times ahead but we are incredibly grateful.
During our time in and out of hospital, my wife Rosie and I saw first hand the amazing work that HeartKids does to support children and families with congenital heart disease.
The 14th of February is International Congenital Heart Defect Awareness Day (aka Valentine’s Day). HeartKids has created an annual fundraiser on this date called Sweetheart Day, to raise awareness and funds to support the 8 babies who are born every day with a heart defect. Sadly, 4 young lives are lost to CHD each week.
We are not one to ask people to donate, since we know many of you donate to many other wonderful charities, but we just thought we’d show support to this organisation that is close to our hearts and has supported us and many families in our position. Sweetheart Day is a chance for you to join in the fight against this disease.
