Dexter Phillips Heartkids Hero


raised so far


of $2,500 goal

4 years ago I had open heart surgery. It wasn't expected that I would need open heart surgery, but after a routine check up it was found that my heart was so big that the two holes I had had since birth had to be closed. It happened in just 3 weeks. My Mum and Dad were so scared, I had already had a number of major surgeries since I was born, but this was by far the biggest hurdle yet.
Heartkids supported me and my family through this very stressful time and now I want to help make a difference to other children like me, and their families. On April 30th I'll be a Hero 4 HeartKids by climbing the Matagarup Bridge with my Mum (who is pretty scared of heights!) Please donate whatever you can to help us in our quest.
