Information on heart disease
Calum is a bubbly 11 year old who wants to play football and be faster at swimming than his little brother. But his life keeps being interrupted by major operations on his heart.
Calum’s surgeon - and BHF funded researcher Professor Massimo Caputo is leading research that could change the future of heart surgery for children.
Each year around 4,000 babies are diagnosed with a heart condition in the UK.
Thanks to your donations we have supported decades of research to improve the understanding, diagnosis and treatment of congenital heart disease.
Every day 12 babies in the UK are diagnosed with heart defects. We're currently spending over £10m on research to help them.
Help us keep funding research to help children like Calum. You can run, cycle, walk or skydive for our research.
