Findlay's Story

Findlay Harasymiuk-Mackenzie is a remarkable little boy whose journey through Yorkhill Hospital and the Royal Hospital for Children in Glasgow has been unimaginably difficult.

Findlay was born with down's syndrome, bowel problems and a life threatening heart condition - Pulmonary Atresia and VSD (a hole in the heart).

Not only has Findlay had to deal with the challenges of his own health, but in June 2015 his father Hector passed away from motor neurone disease - just months before Findlay required surgery to close the hole in his heart.

Findlay's mum Millie says: "Through all the grief Findlay has been a tower of strength - his bravery shines every day in his infectious smile".

We are honoured that Millie and Findlay shared their heartbreaking and inspiring story with us in support of our Little Hearts Appeal which helped to raise  £150,000 to fund a state-of-the-art 4D cardiac scanner at the Royal Hospital for Children.
