Donate today to stand with Heart Warrior Inayah, and support lifesaving CHD clinical trials

Inayah was born with CHD and endured 5 open-heart surgeries and a heart transplant to survive

“Inayah has been fighting for her life since before her first breath. She's a little Heart Warrior” – Jay, Inayah's mum

Inayah has endured five open-heart surgeries and a heart transplant to survive her battle with CHD - and she is only five years old. No family or child should have to endure this struggle for survival.

Together, we can protect tiny hearts

With your help, Professor Sally Dunwoodie, AO and her team will start clinical trials to explore the impact of a simple vitamin B3 supplement on levels of a molecule known as NAD in preventing some cases CHD.

We are so close to being able to potentially prevent many thousands of children around the world being born with damaged hearts - but we need to raise at least $396,500 this tax time to fund more lifesaving heart research.
