Help more kids survive open-heart surgery

Each year, up to 300 Australian kids develop vocal cord paralysis following heart surgery…

Wouldn’t it be wonderful to lower that number!

Sadly, Jonathan was born with a faulty heart and at just seven days old, he had his first open-heart surgery.  Soon he will turn one, but still faces a third operation.

Jonathan’s next major surgery is always in his parents’ minds. He has avoided vocal cord paralysis so far, but they know that third time around, he may not be so lucky.

We need your help to fund vital research, to reduce the risk of kids like Jonathan developing this dangerous and sometime deadly complication.
