We at Heart Heroes really wish we didn’t have to support the bereavement side of the cardiac world but sadly some beautiful Heart Heroes like Phoenix will be forever 3. This is the stark reality of a child living with a complex heart condition. We thank Phoenix’s mum Clare, dad Damien and sister Faye, for allowing us to continue to be part of your journey and the fact you want to support others who have lost is truly inspirational. Phoenix was truly one of a kind albeit non verbal he found ways to communicate and make everyone STOP and listen. Truly loved by his family and everyone that knew him.
Clare knows only too well the effects and struggles of having a child with a complex heart condition and now the unbearable loss. We will support the family anyway we can and think it’s truly inspirational that they want to support others.
We will be offering families the option to partake in the Grief recovery programme, read all about it here…
When you are suffering, on a daily basis, with the pain of a broken heart, there is one major question you need to ask yourself: Do I want to continue to suffer this pain for the rest of my life? Many people think this is the only option, and the fate they must endure forever. Many become accustomed to finding themselves in tears at odd moments throughout their days when they think of a love or relationship lost. Others believe that their loss has destroyed their happiness and sense of security, and now feel that they will be bitter and joyless forever. That is not the case. You have options that can move you out from under this cloud.
