Albert's Story

Whilst Albert Tansey is the inspiration behind KEEPTHEBEAT, he will never, and due to Charity rules, cannot benefit from the Charity. This Charity was formed by Albert’s parents to give hope to other parents faced with a similar situation to that faced by them back in August 2009.
Here is a brief video about Albert:
“I was just 96 hours old when my mum and dad realised that I was poorly. I went to Glenfield hospital where they told us that I had hypoplastic left heart syndrome which means I only have half a heart, you can watch more of my story below. “
