My friend’s sister lost her baby at just three and a half months old, due to dilated cardiomyopathy and they are committed to helping other families to avoid this situation, with supporting research into genetic diagnosis.

The money will enable the team at Royal Brompton & Harefield Hospital to set up a research project which takes two years to complete, and will provide valuable knowledge into genetic cardiomyopathy which effects 1 in 100,000 babies, to better treat and manage this condition.
