Heart Week

Now is the time to start making preparations for Heart Week 2018 !

 In February 2017, many of you joined in and raised vital funds and awareness for babies with serious heart conditions.

 

A massive thank you to everyone who has supported Heart Week this year – from tea parties to dress down days, to Valentine’s Day office activities, we’ve had it all. Even walking across the Forth Bridge on the coldest day of the year! Thank you Chelsea and Louise!

With your help, we have been able to continue our work to support babies with heart conditions, and their families. Thank you!

We are now making plans for Heart Week 2018 which will take place 12th – 18th February 2018

You don’t  have to have raised a lot to make a huge difference.

Remember it only costs Tiny Tickers £75 to provide specialist on-site training to a sonographer who will be conducting up to 300 pregnancy scans ever year. Together we can make them more confident and skilled at detecting heart conditions.

Arthur born with Transposition of the Great ArteriesYour efforts could save lives just weeks later.

Arthur’s heart defect was detected during mum Mel’s pregnancy. Mel says:

“I will never forget the brilliant medical teams who looked after Arthur and me, but especially the sonographer who saved his life. It was only through her diligence and skill that Arthur’s condition was detected – and I want all babies born with TGA to have the same chance. That is why Tiny Tickers’ work is so important. They train sonographers to be better able to detect these heart conditions and it is vital and lifesaving work.”
