In Memory of Edward Wheatley

Andy Wheatley

My page:

Our 4 year old son, Edward, died on July 28 following complications after open heart surgery. From the moment of antenatal diagnosis at 24 weeks, throughout his life and in the days since he passed away, we have been supported by a wonderful charity called Little Hearts Matter. Like all small charities they are dependent on donations to continue the fabulous work that they do.

At Edward's funeral we asked mourners and well-wishers to consider making a donation to Little Hearts Matter and have been overwhelmed by the generosity shown. The fund is still open and people are still contributing - we cannot express our thanks clearly enough. All money raised will go to helping other children and families affected by Edward's condition, Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome. We can tell you from experience how important this support is.

We have not set a target, and would be enormously grateful for any donations, no matter how small.

You can read about Edward's battle for life here:

With love and thanks,

Andy & Clare
