Lisa Paisley on behalf of Heartkids

https://www.heartkids.org.au

I am the proud mother of 3 brave and strong children born with congenital heart disease. They have each been through open heart surgeries. Their courage and determination is an inspiration to me and I am in awe of them. 

I am a proud supporter of the charity HeartKids. They support children and families affected by heart disease and fund vital research in finding a cure. 

Facts:                                                                                                                                                     -8 children are born with a heart defect every day in Australia.                                                                  -4 precious lives are lost each week.                                                                                                            -Congenital heart disease is a lifelong disease; there is no known cure.                                               -Congenital heart disease is the single biggest cause of death in children under 1 in Australia.           -Heart surgery is not a cure - children with congenital heart disease face unique challenges for the rest of their lives and for many, includes ongoing medical treatment and repeated heart surgeries. 

Please help me raise the vital funds and awareness so that we can help children, including mine, to find a cure and reduce the number of children born with heart disease.
