Patch the Heart Lion is a character created to help support children with Congenital Heart Disease. Often children must face multiple hospital procedures and surgeries throughout their heart journeys. Patch too has a CHD and has experienced many hospital procedures and surgery. It is hoped that children will relate to Patch and his experience and learn to express their thoughts and feelings along their heart journey.

‘Patch’ the mascot has already successfully brought smiles to many South Australian families by attending charity functions, family fun days, bike rides and Christmas picnics.

Finally… Patch the Heart Lion features in a picture book that may be used as a vehicle for discussion about the many emotions, procedures and feelings that children experience along their heart journey. This book has been created by two mums, Natalie Halls-Jones and Karen Horsell, who both have young boys with Congenital Heart Disease.
