Skydive

On August 2nd 2020, an elite team of superheroes will don their capes of courage to boldly go where so many would fear… a skydive above the rolling, Devonshire hills.​

We salute these guardians of goodwill for undertaking this mission. It takes great bravery and fortitude to pursue such a challenge.

Our skydiving champions must be praised for their fearless endeavour, but who are the real superheroes amongst us?

It must be those that achieve the extraordinary… every day. Those that are born with obstacles in their path, but show astonishing courage to overcome them and carry on regardless. These are the superheroes that we must celebrate and applaud.

Congenital heart disease (CHD) is one of the most common types of birth defect, affecting up to 8 in every 1,000 babies born in the UK. To you and I, that’s 8 superheroes that need a little help from us.

Children with CHD have the same needs as any other child. They face challenges, such as making friends, understanding their body as they grow, school, play and where they fit in society.

In addition, however, children with CHD/heart conditions must navigate a parallel world; a world of cardiologists, echocardiograms, electrocardiograms, pacemakers, defibrillators and regular surgery.

No matter how strong their superpowers maybe, they need our support to help negotiate this maze of medical intervention and find happiness in the world outside.

JOIN IN NOW

At Heart Heroes, we have the power to make that difference. With your help, we support families of children living with CHD/Heart conditions through a range of family events, fun activities and play therapy.

Together, we can help our Heart superheroes soar to the heights of happiness and joy that they deserve.

Thank you,
Heart Heroes

Coronavirus and Heart Heroes

The Coronavirus is causing worry for most people, but even more so for parents and carers of a child with a heart condition.

We urge all our Heart Hero families to only look to the NHS and Government websites for advice on the Coronavirus. At present there is not any specific advice for patients with heart conditions but if that changes we will post it on our website and media pages as soon as we are informed.

Did this really just happen?

The wonderful Theresa Fisher messaged me to ask me to go and pick up something she had for us ❤️ As you can see this HUGE Andrex puppy dog is adorable. It’s even got a heart on its paw. Theresa said ‘Andrex only give out a few of these and she wanted us to have it to raffle, auction off as she absolutely loves our passion and what we do as a charity!! ❤️
