Please help heal more little hearts like Daniel's this Christmas!

Baby Daniel was born with his heart back to front, on the wrong side of his body and only one ventricle was pumping. Essentially, Daniel had half a heart. 

“During pregnancy I was told his heart condition was incompatible with life; I’ve never ever been so scared, my own heart broke into pieces,” Libby remembers. “At birth Daniel’s heart was the size of a small strawberry. From birth to four years old, he had three heart surgeries and many other interventions that saved his life.”

Daniel is now seven, and one thing that has helped him over the years is the cardiac ultrasound machine the Canberra Hospital Foundation was able to purchase, thanks to our generous donors.

The ultrasound allows Daniel’s Sydney-based paediatric cardiologist, Dr Stephen Cooper, to run a clinic out of Canberra Hospital. This is the only way kids like Daniel can access exceptional cardiac care without the stress and risk of a long trip interstate.

Your urgent Christmas gift supporting exceptional healthcare here in Canberra can change the life stories of children like Daniel every day.  

Give generously today.

As a visiting doctor at Canberra Hospital, Dr Cooper gives babies and children in our community the exceptional benefit of easier access to his world-standard expertise. His work here is supported by a cardiac ultrasound machine purchased by the Canberra Hospital Foundation with help from our donors like you.

“You can see a picture of the heart, you can do 3-D reconstructions,” says Dr Cooper. “With this state-of-the-art technology, we can make a diagnosis accurately. If I didn’t have this machine here, I may well not be coming.”
