The Children’s Heartbeat Trust is a local charity, funded solely from public donations. We provide support in a number of ways including; - Financial support for Clark Clinic - Family Support Groups throughout Northern Ireland - Parent accommodation at the Royal Belfast Hospital for Sick Children - Parent support and information networks - Research into heart disease in children - Counselling Services Your support will help change the lives of children with heart disease in Northern Ireland.

Oscar was diagnosed with high risk Neuroblastoma (an extremely rare and aggressive childhood cancer) on 30th November 2011.

As far as is known, Oscar is the only child in the world ever to have Jacobsen Syndrome and Neuroblastoma. The odds of this are about TEN BILLION TO ONE.

We need your help to raise £2,000,000 for a dedicated children's MRI Scanner at the Royal Belfast Hospital for Sick Children (RBHSC). The Royal Belfast Hospital for Sick Children is the only children's hospital in the UK not to have an MRI Scanner. 

This means that children like Oscar in Northern Ireland may have to undergo treatments involving radiation or invasive procedures instead of benefitting from a safe and repeatable MRI scan.

Oscar has sat on long waiting lists in order to receive an MRI scan, which delayed his diagnosis. He has had to have high risk CT scans instead of a harmless MRI scan because there is just no availability.

Please donate and help us provide the safest and best possible treatment for sick children in Northern Ireland. The Children's MRI Scanner Appeal is being ran in partnership by four local children's charities; Helping Hand, Carrickmannon MRI Scanner Children's Appeal, Northern Ireland Children's Cancer Unit Fund and the Children's Heartbeat Trust.
