Glen and Nichole running 5.7km together you say? Well yes it's true but we have a great motivation - our son Mosiah who died on the 18th of March 2009 from a congenital heart disease called Hypoplastic Left Heart Sydnrome. The purpose of our run is to raise more awareness of Congenital Heart Disease.

Cupcakes at CHW

Posted by Kylie Flament on 23 April 2013
Selling CupcakesSeveral of the staff at the Heart Centre for Children were baking until all hours last night in preparation for a quick fundraiser in the main entrance of The Children's Hospital at Westmead.  The cupcakes sold out in record time and just over $500 was made, which has been added to our fund for a new cardiac ultrasound (echo) machine.  It was such a success that there are already calls for another baking table, so stay tuned.

A new Radio Frequency Perforator

Posted by Kylie Flament on 18 December 2012
Thanks to the incredible efforts of Debbie Kladis, Charlie Garcia and the team at Wishing Hearts, who organised a huge gala dinner in August 2012, we were able to purchase a Radio Frequency Perforator which will allow us to treat more children with catheterisation (keyhole surgery) rather than open heart surgery.  Dr Phil Roberts, Lead Interventional Cardiologist at the Heart Centre for Children, was delighted to receive the new piece of equipment in November and has had several cases where the device has been used already.
