Registered Charity No
Thank you for signing up to take part in our weekly lottery and helping make a big difference for babies with serious heart conditions, their families and the health professionals who care for them.
One in every 125 babies is born with a serious heart condition - that’s one every two hours. The early detection of their condition is vital to give these babies the best start in life. But sadly, 1000 newborns with heart conditions are sent home from UK hospitals every year with no-one knowing they are gravely ill.
Many will fall into heart failure before getting the treatment they need and sadly, some won’t make it back to hospital in time. Tiny Tickers is changing that.
Our mission is that every heart baby receives a diagnosis as soon as medically possible and that their family gets the support they need. We do this by training the sonographers who carry out pregnancy scans to have the skills and confidence to detect heart defects, placing potentially life-saving equipment in maternity units and supporting families through the most difficult of journeys..
None of this would be possible without our generous supporters. Thank you for making a big difference.
