"It was a really difficult time, a real roller coaster.  We knew that Hope would need to be in hospital for a long time and we weren’t sure what the outcome would be or how we would cope as a family." - Kirby (Hope's Mom)

Little Hope had her first surgery at just one week old - her heart was the size of a small strawberry! 

Sadly, Kirby and Dave Long's story is all too familiar for so many of our heart kid community!  

"HeartKids do a lot for us, they come and visit all the time. They provide food vouchers as it’s a real struggle for us. We are living pay to pay."

It is in this time of need HeartKids is there to help provide in hospital support, financial assistance, education and necessities like food and accommodation.

Together, we can make sure that courageous heart families in Australia do not have to face the trauma of congenital heart disease alone. Your generosity will help us deliver crucial support services at their most vulnerable time.

We have Hope, who makes the struggles worth it!
