When little Lorenzo was born last year, his mother, Emma, could only hold him for a few moments before he was rushed to ICU.
His tiny heart hadn’t developed properly – he was so weak that he needed urgent medical care and, within a few days, open-heart surgery.
Thanks to the sort of ground-breaking research that supporters like you make possible, little Lorenzo recovered quickly enough to spend Christmas at home with his family.
Sadly, some tiny hearts will still be struggling this Christmas. Every day, 12 babies are diagnosed with Congenital Heart Disease in the UK – a range of conditions that can stop hearts indiscriminately and, often, without warning.
Will you give a gift this year so we can continue to help to keep bring tiny hearts home for Christmas and beyond?
