"We nearly lost him twice because of his heart, being so sick. There was less than a twenty percent chance of surviving his first open heart surgery when he was four days old. His second open heart almost took him on me. He had his third one at eight months old and his fourth last summer."

Zack (5) from Meath is living with hypoplastic left heart syndrome and is just back from his wish to visit Santa Claus in Lapland. Mum Aoife told us, "it was magical - he had the best time. He has been asking me to see Santa since May last year! When they finally met, Zack hugged him and cuddled up to him for the photo. Zack had made him a picture and Santa put it over his workshop window. His little face had the biggest smile! My heart was so full... I can't say thank you enough."
