Children’s FH Resources

HEART UK has produced resources aimed at children and families where FH is present.

A story of Hope

A story of Hope is a short four-minute film about a family with a history of FH.

Hope goes on an enlightening musical journey to explore FH. She realises that if she takes control of her condition and sticks to a few rules then she can live a full and healthy life and also empower others with FH to do the same.

This colourful story-in-song explains FH in a format the whole family can understand and enjoy. Originally produced for the FH Foundation in the United States, HEART UK and University College London have collaborated with Funky Medics to produce this new UK version of the film.
