If your child is diagnosed with a serious heart problem, you and your family will live in continual fear, knowing their heart can skip a beat at any moment. As a result, your son or daughter may have to stay close to home and/or a hospital.
The Mikey’s Kids program provides families with portable MIKEYs so these children can lead more normal lives. They will be able to go on to vacation, go to the cottage and enjoy day trips together as a family, when it may not have otherwise been safe to do so before. The peace of mind these MIKEYs provide is priceless; knowing that should the childís heart skip a beat, life-saving help is close at hand.
Requests for MIKEYs come from the staff at various organizations including international children’s hospitals. Through these placements, Mikey’s Kids from Toronto to Haiti are smiling again!
