MyHeart Website

HeartKids is excited to announce the launch of “My Heart“, a new quality online resource dedicated to young people with childhood heart disease.


Peer support plays an important role for young people, and as such there is a section on the website where you can read stories written by your peers about their own experiences as a Heartkid.

If you are a Heartkid aged 13-22 or older, then you are invited to share your story on the website. You can do this anonymously or be identified by your first name. Writing your story is not that hard – below there is a PDF document that contains some tips to help you. And it doesn’t need to be that long – somewhere between 400 and 800 words.

Listed below is a link to a document that contains guidelines for writing your story.  We need consent for young people aged under 16 from a parent, guardian or legally authorised person; if you are 16 years of age or older you can sign the consent form yourself.

Please send your story to

If you have any questions, please contact HeartKids Australia on 02 9460 7450.
