Good morning! Can anyone steer me in the direction of support groups/connect me with teenagers/adult survivors with HLHS? Need some help navigating COVID and returning to work/normalcy for my 20 year old. Thank you in advance.
My son, Heart Warrior, Gael wanted to share something with his fellow warriors during these hard times. So, he did so by reading his book Exclamation Point for all of you. Please enjoy. https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=232627791322552&id=1171693086286930
So with reaching a massive £1500 last Christmas for the heart unit I have decided I am wanting to achieve a lot more for the freeman hospital this year... Easter Sunday I will be going into ward 23 again to deliver Easter Eggs, crafts, chocolate hampers for all the poorly children and siblings, and of course our amazing nurses/doctors! If anyone could help me out I would massively appreciate it, even £1 egg could make a little face smile🐣❤️
"Everyone feels bad when they hear about your child’s diagnosis. They say, “let me know how I can help.” Honestly, they don’t know how to help and you may not know how they can help. Here are some ideas you can share with them."
"During such a difficult time, taking care of your spiritual health is more important than ever, but it is usually the first thing to go. And you may not even realize it."
Sometimes opening up about your heart journey... will lead you to more support than you could imagine. Our heart warriors hockey team has taken him in and supported him and helped him learn and grow in so many ways. They’ve also added a little “bling” to their jerseys to show their support to our heart warrior and all warriors! 💚💜❤️ we 💚our hockey family! We encourage you to get your heart warrior out there and let them find something that they love to do... you will be amazed at how they will thrive and how others step up to make the littlest of dreams a big reality for your warrior. The more support you get, the easier the days become. ❤️💜💚 Go Panthers!!
“In February, we celebrate love - for our spouses, kids, family members and friends. For those of us who have a child with a congenital heart defect, it’s also called heart month.”
This is a hard month for me. I just so happy that I can have this page and rejoice with the heart heros!! Thank you.
I missed the doctors day during #congenitalheartdiseaseawarenessweek2020 Here is Dr. Hardin and his supportive staff at Tampa Bay Adult Congenital Heart Center.
