The Little Hearts Matter memorial was created as a special place to remember the many children who have sadly died because of their complex heart condition.

Set within the Children’s Wood at the National Memorial Arboretum in Staffordshire, the tree and bench memorials offer families a place to quietly reflect in beautiful calm surroundings. For details of the arboretum’s opening times, visit their website thenma.org.uk

    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."
