I’m George and I’m 1 in 100!
“I’m George and I have had three open heart surgeries at the Leeds Congenital Heart Unit. My latest surgery was in June 2020, during the coronavirus pandemic.
By taking part in the 1 in 100 challenge, you are helping heart warriors just like me. Thank you.”
Days until 2022...
Challenge yourself to take up a new hobby or finally quit a that habit.
Do it before the year is out and do it for the 1 in 100 babies born with CHD in our region. What will do?
