My name is Béibhinn Hope O’ Connor.  I was one of the very special people who suffered from a CHD (Congenital Heart Defect).  I was diagnosed at my 20/22 week scan.  I had left atrial isomerism and was a member of an elite group of people who are classified as having Heterotaxy.  I lived in a town called Riverstick which is located in Co. Cork in the south of Ireland.

On the 16th of September 2020 after coming through one of my major open heart surgeries, a routine post op procedure triggered my heart to stop.  I was honored to receive the title of 'theheartangel' and earned my angel wings.  The 17th of September would have been 10 years to the day that my mummy and daddy were told they would have a daughter with a special heart while I was still in my mummies tummy.



Anyway, now I need to do some good for the world.  Most people that met me know I love to have fun but I also love all the people I have met.  I want everyone to remember me and help me do some good for all the people out there who have special hearts.

Please help me share '#theheartangel' and my story by participating in our 'Random Act of Kindness' campaign and if you are in a position you can donate to our 'Make a Wish' fundraiser  to help grant wishes to seriously ill kids who do not get to lead normal lives like most of us.
