Daithi is just 20 months old and is awaiting a new heart after being born with rare Hypoplastic left heart syndrome.
He has already undergone surgery three times – at four days, 10 days and four months old. However, last December his distraught parents learned he had tricuspid valve leak and the only option now is a heart transplant.
Please pray for Daithi to remain strong while waiting for a new heart and please pray that a heart might be donated in time.
A Belfast Newspaper published this account of his Father’s and Mother’s desire to raise awareness of the need for Organ Donation.
