About the Book
Little Fletcher has a broken heart. He was born with it. His heart needs to be fixed, but can it be done? How do you fix a broken heart?
Fletcher’s Precious Heart is a story that will pull on your heartstrings as it softly sheds light on the reality of Congenital Heart Disease. For many families, Fletcher’s story is their own; the worry, the waiting, the hopes, the fears, the joys, the tears are all so very real to those who have a child with a ‘broken’ heart.
Fletcher’s story of endurance and courage reminds us that all the hearts in this world, big or small, strong or weak, are above all... precious.
I grew up in a small bushland community with a loving family and have spent much of my life drawing and writing stories. Fletcher's Precious Heart (2013) is my first book and it was written for a real life little Fletcher who was born with Congenital Heart Disease. My wish is that this book will help raise people's awareness of CHD and assist Fletcher's family as they provide encouragement and support to many children within Australia who carry this condition, through their charity, Precious Hearts.
