KEEPING AUSTRALIA ALIVE

Nothing tugs at the heart more than sick kids. Tonight, 10- month- old Ariana is having open- heart surgery. The Brisbane baby isn’t alone – 3000 kids in Australia are born with some kind of heart defect every year, with half them requiring surgery. But Ariana’s mother has issues of her own, her daughter’s surgery has made her Crohn’s disease flare up and she has to be hospitalised as well.
