    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.

    In 2020, as many as 550 new families will receive the life changing news that their baby has only half a working heart. They will all feel frightened, isolated and overwhelmed with new information.

    Help us to support them with this devastating news and to feel part of the LHM family. The half-a-heart journey truly is a rollercoaster, but we are here for these incredibly brave families every step of the way.

    To be able to support all of the heart-families out there, we need your generosity this Christmas.
