This Christmas, Little Hearts Matter is asking for you to help wrap a blanket of care and support around families at every stage of their half a heart journey.


This Christmas, around 50 families in the UK will learn that their baby has only half a working heart. These families can be left feeling very alone, frightened and confused until they receive help. This is why LHM exists but we need your help.

£10 could help a family understand what is wrong with their baby’s heart by providing them with an antenatal book, a conditions book and online information.

You can help by making a donation today. Your donation will help to reduce the isolation and confusion families face when they receive a half a heart diagnosis.

    2 weeks on from our initial release of the ‘Wrap a Blanket’ video and we have reached over twenty five thousand people so far. An incredible amount of awareness has been raised. We have also filled our first blanket on the Visufund page, thank you so much to everyone for making this happen!

    But to support every heart-family, we are going to need to fill even more blankets. We are confident in you, our generous supporters, to help us reach our goal of filling 3 blankets by Christmas.
