Little Hearts Matter logo

Little Hearts Matter offers support and information, 
and raises awareness of those affected when a child has only half a heart, 
due to conditions such as Complex Pulmonary Atresia, Tricuspid Atresia, 
Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome (HLHS) or Double Inlet or Outlet Ventricle (Univentricular Heart).
