Child of Courage: Fynn Richardson
Fynn is 10 years old and from Paignton.
He was born with Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome. In layman's terms, he has just half a working Heart. An incurable, life limiting, Congenital Heart Defect.
He has had 5 life-saving open heart surgeries, the first being at just 2 days old.
Fynn has spent a lot of time at Birmingham Children's Hospital, one of the few hospitals that performs surgery on children with this condition... and if 5 major surgeries weren't enough for one child to endure, he's also fought Septicaemia, Protein Losing Enteropathy, had numerous other cardiac procedures, is steroid dependant and has growth delay due to long term steroid use.
He has regular blood tests and check-ups at hospitals in both Torbay and Birmingham.
Fynn takes 7 different medicines a day, some of which 3x daily.
Despite all this Fynn shows he is ALL heart and has a beautiful smile for everyone he meets.
He never complains and likes to live life to the full!
