Supporting children undergoing heart surgery
Little Hearts Matter wanted to provide support to children undergoing a Fontan procedure
Little Hearts Matter
The Fontan procedure is a major heart operation for children who only have half a heart. Each year nearly 200 children with half a working heart undergo the procedure, and it can be a stressful process for the child and their family. Little Hearts Matter wants to make sure all 200 children who need the Fontan procedure in 2018 will be able to benefit from their Fontan support package, which includes an award winning booklet, advice from qualified experts, access to support groups, and a special balloon for them when they arrive back on the ward post-operation.
Little Hearts Matter chose to reach out to their supporters to fund their Fontan appeal, with a Campaign Page focusing their online fundraising.
