Mending Small Hearts

Posted by Kylie Flament on 3 May 2016

We were very excited to see one of our families in the news, and to hear about the Mending Small Hearts gala dinner they are putting together. 

The goal of the Mending Small Hearts charity event is to raise money towards new equipment two ECG machines and a cardiac ultrasound machine.

The hospital treats up to 3500 children with congenital heart disease each year.

Mrs Roy says despite the ongoing challenges, Ethan is a happy baby.

"He's easygoing, and takes everything in his stride," she said.

"He has an amazing team of carers, so we want to give back to say thanks for everybody who has effectively saved his life."

The gala dinner is on July 16 at Doltone House, Sylvania Waters.

Contributions can be made through monetary donations, vouchers or goods for a silent auction and raffle, or table sponsorship.
