How your support has helped families

At Tiny Tickers our message for parents is always ‘you are not alone’. The ability to speak to others going through, or who have been through, a similar situation is often a very valuable source of support for a lot of parents of babies and children with congenital heart disease.

We have been delighted to launch our new free, virtual peer support sessions, made possible by funding from the Coronavirus Community Support Fund, distributed by The National Lottery Community Fund, and the generous donations from you, our supporters.

The last year has been difficult for many different reasons, but particularly for those families who have been newly diagnosed with congenital heart disease, or those who are navigating their CHD journey when the normal support routes have not been available. Diagnosis is an exceptionally difficult time, and often families don’t know where to turn for support and practical advice, let alone when the only support available is at arms-length. We have set up  these sessions to support as many parents & carers, to offer help and advice to any parents that would like to meet and share their experiences. For parents of babies with serious heart conditions, the ability to talk with those going through similar experiences can be a lifeline.

“Taking part in the parent-to-be virtual support group gave us huge levels of support before our baby was born. After our diagnosis, it provided a platform for us to meet other parents experiencing the same worries and emotions, reminding us we were not alone. We are all still in regular contact and continue to support each other through our children’s surgery and aftercare.” Emma, heart parent

Our virtual peer support groups provide a safe and non-judgemental space for heart parents to connect and share their journeys together. We are delighted that with the support of our funders, and generosity of our supporters, we are able to support more families going through the unthinkable.
