There is Hope
A big part of what Lexiam Heart Foundation wants to accomplish, is to let you know that even though your child has been diagnosed with a Congenital Heart Defect (CHD), there is HOPE!
Recent progress in diagnosis and treatment (surgery and heart catheterization) makes it possible to fix most defects, even those once thought to be hopeless.
If your child is born with a heart defect today, the chances are better than ever that the problem can be overcome and that a normal adult life will follow. As diagnosis and treatment continue to advance, scientists will develop better treatments for these and other defects. Your cardiologist will discuss your particular heart defect, treatment options and expected results.
There is Healing
We know what you are going through. We’ve been there. We are still healing from the affects of Congenital Heart Defects in our lives. As part of our healing process, we have taken our grief, and channeled it into helping others. This has given us an outlet for healing, a purpose greater than us. We are proof that healing is possible, that you can be stronger than you think you are, that you can accomplish more than you think you are capable of. And, that healing is possible.
