Patient Stories
Behind every patient is a person with a voice - and a story. We often find that our own patients' stories provide the most powerful source of hope and encouragement for other children and families living with congenital heart disease. Our patients not only inspire families - they inspire each and every one of us here at Children's Heart Clinic. Their stories are a testament to the heart’s strength, and prove that our children not only survive heart disease – they thrive, and go on to lead happy, fulfilling lives.
