BHF research gave me back my future
In 2014 Livvy’s older brother, Lewis, started feeling ill and getting palpitations. He was diagnosed with a hole in his heart, and because their dad had the same thing, doctors said Livvy and her other brother, Perry, should also be checked.
It turned out that they were all diagnosed with a hole in their heart which was a huge bombshell for their family. Within six months Livvy and her brothers all underwent surgery on their hearts.
Seven weeks after her operation Livvy saw the surgeon and he said: ‘You can go out and live your life. You can do anything now.’ Livvy is now studying Drama at university and is determined to seize every opportunity that comes her way.
