Our private Facebook groups

Single ventricle heart conditions are so rare that many of our families do not know anyone else locally who is facing similar challenges. By joining our private groups, members have access to a private space where they can connect with other people on the half a heart journey. Please note that you must be a full members of the charity to join our private groups.

Parent member group

This is a safe, private space for the parents of LHM, we currently have over 1000 group members. Perhaps you would like to raise a question, share an achievement or seek the insight of other families who are also living with the challenges of having a child with a single ventricle heart.

 

“I truly love this group, even when I do not post anything for a while, I love looking at the happy posts from other parents and often the advice given here is very relevant to us.”
