Family stories

It can be helpful to hear from other families – what challenges do they face and how does Forget Me Not’s support really make a difference?

So, with their kind permission, we bring you a selection of stories of children and families we have or are supporting.

Alfie’s story

Cheeky-chappy Alfie is 5 years old and, like every little boy, wants to be playing football and generally getting up to mischief!

Sadly though, his heart condition – hypoplastic right heart syndrome, diagnosed before he was born – means he has half a working heart. He can’t run around or overdo it.

Fortunately, Forget Me Not has been right by their side since before Alfie was born.
