Supporting Queensland families

Holly spent her first 125 days of life in hospital with a life-threatening heart condition.

During a scan at just 21 weeks pregnant, Tamara and Simon received the devastating news that something was wrong with their baby. A follow-up scan at 25 weeks, diagnosed their unborn baby with hypoplastic left heart complex, a condition which causes the left side of the heart to hardly function. Without an accurate diagnosis and subsequent surgery, hypoplastic left heart complex is deadly, usually within the first few days or weeks of life.

As soon as Holly was born, she had several scans to assess exactly what condition her heart was in. But on day two, Holly’s heart crashed and she required five minutes of CPR when her little heart stopped pumping blood around her body. Once CPR was complete and she was stabilised, Holly was sent straight to the operating theatre for her first open-heart surgery.

By three months old, Holly had already endured two life-saving operations on her tiny heart. When Holly was four, she had her third open-heart surgery.

While research continues to improve treatment options for hypoplastic left heart complex, Holly will need to continue with regular check-ups and faces the possibility of further complications and surgery later in life.
