His wife, Michelle, has been busy putting everything in place for thefun new initiative where bosses, or co-workers, dress as a superhero for a day to raise funds for HeartKids.

An organisation dedicated to providing support, encouragement and hope to families of children with Heart Disease.

They employ Family Support Coordinators in each of the twomajor Sydney Children’s Hospitals.These coordinators are ‘heart mums’ and understand more than most what families are experiencing during the often tension filled hospital stays.

And, they were there for the Higgins family after their sonDanielwas born in September 2013 with hypoplastic left heart syndrome (HLHS) – commonly referred to as “half a heart”.

After a brave battle Danielpassed away,and now the courageous couple want to give back to the organisation that supported them.

“I spent most of Daniel’s life with him in hospital and it made such a difference having someone to talk to,” the brave mum says.

“They also bring families in a similar situation together.”

Michelleknows four localfamilies who have lost young children to heart disease.

Eight babies are born with a heart defect everyday in Australia, that’s one in every hundred and almost 3000 a year.Heartkids NSW head of family support, Lara Buster says they provide, practical – including meal andgrocery vouchers– and warmsupport to families so they don’t feel isolated when in hospital.

“We don’t get anygovernment funding and as we think all Heartkids are superheroeswhat better way of turning itaround and having some fun whileraising much needed funds.”
