Shaun's short but amazing life was filled with courage, gratitude
powerful insight and spiritual wisdom far beyond his years
being the only Australian child in August of 2008 to receive two
Heart Transplants his life was filled with three times the power the love.
A hero and beacon of hope to the Cardiac Kids and their loved ones
all around the world he proudly embraced the important task
of Cardiac Kids Ambassador at the Royal Children's Hospital
Melbourne Australia creating Hospital history.
Shaun spoke publicly on awareness / education
for the important research required to find the baffling cure of CHD
Childhood Congenital Heart Disease
to the medical field Government officials
and people from all walks of life.
Helping other Cardiac Kids and their Parents all around the globe
he became an important link to those who had been diagnosed with CHD
someone who was waiting for a Transplant or just about to have
a Heart Transplantation sharing his amazing wisdom
and gifts of courage and hope to all.
Childhood Congenital Heart Disease accounts for 40% of deaths
in Children under five years old and has effected
over 100 million people worldwide
every week 42 babies are born with CHD and a whopping 80%
of all cases of CHD remain unsolved because Doctors
have no idea what causes this deadly disease.
Shaun knew only to well what life was like for the Cardiac Kids
at 7 West RCH Cardiac Koala Ward
only to be diagnosed once again himself with CHD
Heart Rejection shortly after his seventeenth birthday.
In the face of all adversity and at the age of only thirteen
he began his incredible New York Award winning book
that has changed the lives of millions of people
and assists every day in countless teenage suicide prevention's.

of Shaun's legacy and very proud to have shared Shaun's amazing life

through the perils of Heart Transplantation
the joys of victory and the sadness and loneliness of defeat.
But nothing could prepare Cameron for the journey
