Tneil's Story

Sisters

Written by Tneil, 27 September 2016  |  Tetralogy of Fallot (TOF) 

It's great to have something in common with your siblings but my big sister and I have something very special "it's our hearts."

My sister Jackie is 23 years old and she has had four operations to repair her heart. Meanwhile I, at 17 years old have had two. We have Tetralogy of Fallot. It's amazing to think, that we both have the same heart to love each other. She is not only my big sister but my best friend, we share everything, clothes, make up and heart kid friends. We have been on heart camp together and have had a ball.

Sadly, we have also lost some of our heart kids friends together and of course, we both feel the pain. I love my sister and she loves me.
