Tiny Tickers - how is 2015 going so far?

Plans are going well as Spring arrives for Tiny Tickers. We are working hard to deliver our first regional training of sonographers who feed into one of the specialised cardiac centres in the UK, aiming to start training from June. This will mean we can train 250 sonographers before the end of 2015 - smashing our previous capacity - making sure that they are best equipped to spot a heart defect during pregnancy scans. 

This will mean that more heart defects can be detected in babies as early as possible - giving them a fighting chance. Put simply, the earlier a baby’s heart defect is detected, the better the outcome for that child.Without your support, we wouldn't be able to deliver this. Thank you. 

Honey was born in October 2014. Her mum, Grace, spent the early weeks of Honey’s life asking health professionals about her lethargy and lack of weight-gain, yet no alarm was raised. Finally, just before Christmas, her doctor checked Honey’s heart and discovered a murmur.

Honey was 7 weeks old when she was finally diagnosed with a serious heart defect. By this time, she had gone into early heart failure and, at 10 weeks old, Honey weighed just 6 lbs. Thankfully, Honey has now had surgery and is in recovery. However the distress and subsequent health problems endured by Honey and her family could have been significantly reduced had Honey's heart condition been detected earlier.

Thank you so much for all your support - together, we can help babies like Honey and give their hearts a better start.
