Why make a Monthly Donation?

By giving a monthly donation, you’ll be providing the essential foundation needed so we can help hundreds of new families on their half a heart journey; welcoming them into a community, providing them with a family they didn’t even know they needed.

We know times are difficult, but by signing up and giving, for example, the cost of a cup of coffee a week, you’d be helping Little Hearts Matter to continue to provide the support, information and community to families who need it more than ever during these unprecedented times.

    A huge thank you to Taylor for highlighting our leg pain in CHD study, here's the link for anyone who missed it 👇www.lhm.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/2019/08/CTY18-009PRF.pdfTaylor is a medical student with a single ventricle heart condition, you can follow her amazing journey by clicking the link below 👇Fontan with a Future - A Medical Student's CHD Journey#halfaheartnothalfalife#tuesdaymotivationRaise your hand if you’re a Fontan patient and experience leg pain!All my life I have had occasional aches in my legs, especially after a day of strenuous activity. I thought it was just “growing pains” but I continued to experience this after I stopped growing.Interestingly, a recent study found that this phenomenon is common in Fontan patients. In fact, 94% of patients with Fontan circulation reported leg pain compared to 30% of their healthy siblings. While this study only looked at 220 patients, I think the findings are striking. The authors don’t know exactly what causes this pain but proposed some ideas like decreased oxygenation levels, lower vitamin D or decreased bone density.Fortunately, this pain can be easily treated with over-the-counter pain medicine, heat, or massage. While it is uncomfortable, there is no reason to believe it is harmful or dangerous. Still, it would be interesting to get to the bottom of this and help those who suffer from pain frequently.Would love to hear from others if you have had similar experiences!If you’re interested to read more you can check out the article: www.lhm.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/2019/08/CTY18-009PRF.pdfLeg Pains in CHD: a distressing symptom of a wider problem, Hutchinson et al.#heartwarrior #medicalstudent #wellness #research ...

    "We will never forget hearing the words "he might not survive.""But Loki showed us he was a true fighter.""Sometimes I feel people forget how serious his condition is, because "he is doing well" yes and showing everyone he is battling on, with the biggest smile, the cheekiness and his little ways but yet just one little thing could mean he could end up back in hospital".Shared by LHM member Emma, heart-mum to Loki here who was born with HLHS.
