Wear a bear for PMH and help kids

The annual Wear A Bear Day for PMH supports children cared for at Princess Margaret Hospital for Children like The Vines� seven-year-old Abbey Hart.

She was just six weeks old when her GP heard what she thought was a silent murmur, and referred her parents to a paediatric cardiologist who identified the problem as mild pulmonary stenosis. At a follow-up appointment when she was two, doctors found one side of Abbey�s heart was slightly enlarged which was the first sign of a hole.

This hole meant that oxygen-rich and oxygen-poor blood were mixing and putting a strain on her heart and required surgery in 2012.
