    One of our wonderful members Daniela shares her feelings of when she first learnt that her son had only half a heart...

    "It was one of the most difficult and uncertain times in our lives but it was also helpful knowing that others could understand what we were going through and that we had prepared ourselves and done everything we needed to do to understand what was going to happen to Oscar in surgery."

    “We are forever grateful for LHM for everything they have assisted us with, for what they have informed us about, and for the ongoing support we receive. We really couldn’t do this journey without the charity.”

    A huge thank you to Daniela for sharing your half-a-heart journey with us, we'd love for you to read the full story here: bit.ly/2QY5Bcp
