Ten-year-old Phoebe was born with a complex heart defect. At just four days old she underwent open heart surgery and she was given a 50/50 chance of survival. This first operation was the first of many – Phoebe will require surgery on her heart throughout her life.
Despite the challenges she has faced, Phoebe has remained a happy and positive child. She has lots of hobbies and is passionate about dancing, singing and drama. Phoebe also loves animals and has always wanted a dog.
