Our son Arlo, born 23/11/2020, is 1 of the 8 babies born with Congenital Heart Disease every day in Australia. He was diagnosed with Tetrology of Fallot at our 20 week pregnancy scan. This means he will require open heart surgery during his first year of life. We have been lucky with the support of our family, friends and specialists. We have also received support from Heart Kids, they have rung us to check in and make sure we are doing ok. When we go into hospital with Arlo they will be there to support us.
Heart kids provide all kinds of things for families of children with CHD, including transport, accommodation and support programs both in and out of hospital.
February is CHD awareness month and February 14 2021 is sweetheart day, a day to raise funds for Heart Kids.
During the month of February we are going to walk/run 200km to raise funds for Heart Kids. We would really appreciate your support, if you have a few spare dollars and could donate, that would be amazing. Even better if you would would like to join us for a few kilometres!
Our journey with Arlo has only just begun, and we would like to support Heart Kids as they support us and so many other families.
Rachel, Kristen, Quinn and Arlo x
