The Heart Foundation is leading the battle against heart disease in Australia to improve the health of all of us, even young people like Hamish.
Hamish was a super fit, 16 year old, when a lingering cough lead to mysterious chest pains. He had contracted a heart infection which caused him to have a cardiac arrest.
Hamish has since had a defibrillator implanted to help regulate his heart. A medical breakthrough only made possible with the support of generous people like you. Your points will make a difference!
