Monthly donors are the heartbeat of Little Hearts Matter. The steady, regular gift that keeps everything running.

Why give to Little Hearts Matter?

Little Hearts Matter provides support and information to children, and their families, when a child is diagnosed as having only half a working heart. Approximately 500 babies in the UK are diagnosed with these incurable heart conditions each year. To have a chance of survival, these children will need repeated surgery, but their hearts will never be normal. They must learn to live every day with the restrictions that their condition creates. Such a condition has profound effects on many aspects of life, for both child and family.

Become part of the heartbeat today and you can make sure that we can support families not only today but tomorrow, next week and next year.

    The Youth Zone is our dedicated support network for young adults aged 11 to 17 living with a single ventricle heart condition. During lock-down, we have been working hard to keep our youth members supported and connected with each other.

    We just wanted to shine some light on this awesome bunch, as they have come so far and achieved so much during the Covid Crisis. One of our highlights being this video, a 26 minute exercise challenge via Zoom, all in support of LHM for the 2.6 challenge. They smashed the routine and raised over £500 for us! Thank you.

    The group keeps in touch through regular Netflix parties and lots of healthy discussion on the private message forums, as well as having access to 1-1 support provided by LHM whenever they need it.

    None of this would be possible without our youth leader Lexie and our awesome youth mentors, please can we all thank them for the incredible work they have been doing for these brave young people throughout this crisis.

    Open Heart Surgery during Lock-down | LHM parent member Rose shares some uplifting words for us.

    "We were very apprehensive about this surgery as the last one he had was a very long recovery. He literally has made so many people proud, Naayt had his open heart surgery on the 11th June and was discharged 11 days later... home! yes, home!"

    "I couldn't believe it either. You will be so amazed at how pink they are after this surgery and its so lovely to see. The only thing that stops them is the drains which he had 1 left in literally 3 days before discharge and his inr being in range which happened on the day he was allowed home."

    "These kids are so amazing and I am so amazed at how fast they can recover and get through these operations."
