The Children's Heart Federation is a national charity and umbrella body for voluntary organisations, working to meet the needs of children and young people affected by congenital and acquired heart conditions. Funds raised for the Children's Heart Federation go to: - A free helpline that gives information, support and advice; - Medical equipment that heart children use to test their blood at home, avoiding trips to hospital that disrupt their daily lives; - Welfare grants to help heart families cope with the extra costs of bringing up a youngster with a serious health condition; - Once in a lifetime trips to brighten the lives of heart children and their families.

Paul's - "Pound for every year I've waited"!

Paul Willgoss

My page:

Six long years ago I applied to run the London Marathon...

For five years I've gotten the dreaded rejection magazine...

Now I'm in...

Six years... I've been training for this, one way or another for six years...

So, help me help the kids born with heart conditions today - when I was born with mine the support was minimal and the prognosis unknown,  Now things are a lot better, but there's still a need for support, advocacy and just having events where the kids can be kids.

So go on, I've spent six years waiting for this, give us £6 (more and less is equally acceptable)!
