How Becoming A Father Helped Me Understand What Heart Parents Go Through… Levi’s Story

Levi is a young father and amateur triathlete from Brisbane. In his early twenties, Levi dropped out of care.

Levi’s hospital had been trying to get in touch with him as he needed a third surgery on his heart. Like when he was young, Levi’s parents were there to help him through his third open-heart surgery.

Levi is now 36 and a father to two beautiful children. Through parenthood, he has developed a new understanding of the support his parents gave him growing up as a heart kid.  Levi’s story highlights the importance of check-ups and follow-up care, and celebrates the amazing support our networks provide in times of need.
