Mark Tami MP Supports Think HEART Campaign

Mark Tami MP for Alyn and Deeside has attended an event to support the Think HEART campaign. This is the latest campaign by The Children’s Heart Federation to highlight the signs that parents should look for to help identify possible heart conditions in children.

Mark Tami said: “I am delighted to support the Think HEART campaign which aims to inform parents of the possible warning signs of a heart condition. I hope this campaign will give parents confidence to raise concerns with their doctor if they feel that there may be a problem.”

At the event Mark Tami met with one mother, Alex Smith, whose daughter was diagnosed after over two years with Congenital Heart Disease. She spoke of how difficult it was to get a diagnosis and how their lives would have been much different in the early days had they known what was wrong with their daughter.
