Heart Week 2019

You don’t have to raise 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.  £700 will enable us to provide a pulse oximetry machine for a maternity ward that checks babies’ oxygen levels before they are sent home.

Damian’s daughter, Elsie, had a serious heart defect which wasn’t detected until she was already very ill. Daniel says, “We are forever in debt to all the people who helped save her life. We were one of the lucky ones. 

Elsie born with Transposition of the Great Arteries

The thought of a congenital heart defect going unnoticed in other babies and them not being as lucky as Elsie is very disturbing.

Further training for sonographers, midwives and pulse oximetry machines in maternity wards would make such a difference and hopefully save lots of babies.”
