Understanding your child’s heart condition and the treatments that medical teams set out for them can be challenging because most people have little knowledge of what the heart does or what can go wrong.

Over the next few pages we hope to explain each main single ventricle heart condition in turn and then to explain the sorts of treatment that may be offered. If at any time you would like to chat through the information you have been given, do not hesitate in giving the LHM team a ring on 0121 455 8982.

    Living every day being different from your peers is frustrating.
    So it is time to reward young people striving to manage the challenges that having half a heart creates. Little Hearts Matter has created a series of awards for 8 – 18 year olds that aim to encourage young people living with half their heart to learn more about their condition and how to manage the challenges they face every day. For more information about the Brave Heart Awards and nomination forms, please follow the link
