Georgina was diagnosed with Ebstein’s anomaly in 2009 and will need a valve repair at some point. Georgina is affected by her heart condition everyday and gets breathless, tired, blue and puffy around her eyes and mouth. She needs to be reminded to take breaks as she doesn’t understand her limits yet.
Her family heard about the Children’s Heart Federation as they were looking for help with some play therapy to get Georgina over her anxiety around hospitals and staff. Children’s Heart Federation gives grants to families who need extra financial support to help them care for their heart child, but with funds under strain so Georgina’s family decided to fundraise.
Georgina’s story has appeared in the Watford Observer
