Tue, 22 Mar 2016


The parents of a baby from the Isle of Man whose life was saved at Alder Hey have started a fundraising campaign to say Thank You'.
 
Emily Cattle's daughter Catherine was born with a rare heart condition called Tetralogy of Fallots which affects just four in every 10,000 children.
 
She was only four weeks old when doctors performed open heart surgery on her on Boxing Day last year - thankfully it was successful. 
 
To celebrate a party has been organised for April 1st with all money raised going towards the hospital and the British Heart Foundation - it's hoped local businesses will put up prizes to help. 
 
Emily says the whole ordeal was frightening:
