Halor's story

Posted by Kylie Flament on 23 June 2017

One of our patients, Halor, was featured on The Children's Hospital at Westmead's Facebook page this week:



"Born weighing just less than a bag of flour, Halor was a very little baby entering a very big world. Even smaller though was his tiny heart, which due to a serious heart condition, was working overtime to pump blood to the rest of his body. Surgery was vital to fix Halor's heart and is ultimately the reason, 11 years on; he is able to run the City2Surf.

This August, Halor will be running as part of City2Surf - Team Bandaged Bear not only to give back to the doctors and nurses who helped him, but also to raise money for other children with heart conditions.

You can go the distance #forsickkids too by registering as part of Team Bandaged Bear or by making a donation. Visit"
