My story

[p][b]Thanks for visiting my fundraising page![/b][/p][p][b]I will running four events across four days totaling 48K in Pathos, Cyprus between 23rd November and 26th November to raise money for heart charity Tiny Tickers.[/b][/p][p][b] Tiny Tickers are a small charity who work to increase early detection rates of conjenital heart defects in babies to improve babies chances survival. More than 3,000 babies are born with a heart defect in the UK, with around 1,000 of these newborns going home without these defects being detected. Tiny Tickers, works to train sonographers to spot defects during routine pregnancy scans; supports families through diagnosis; campaign to improve service standards; raise awareness and support acedemic research.[/b][/p][p][b]My grandson was one of these babies born with an undetected heart defect in 2015. Luckily Arthur was born in Southampton, a hospital with excellent paediatric and cardiac expertise. He underwent open heart surgery at just 8 days old to switch his arteries, and after spending several days in intensive care and on the paediatric cardic ward he was sent home with his parents, 12 days later. [/b][/p][p][b][lt]br /[gt][/b][/p][p][b][lt]br /[gt][/b][/p][lt]p style="box-sizing: inherit; margin-top: 0px; font-family: SignikaNegative; font-size: 23px;"[gt][/p]

Known Tom for over 20 years and had the pleasure of this summer watching Arthur run around my parents garden with my nieces and nephews. Charities like Tiny Tickers will hopefully help lots of other parents, families and friends have similar experiences.
