He developed complications and for many weeks his life hung in the balance. He received his life-saving surgery at the Walter Sisulu Paediatric cardiac centre at Sunninghill hospital. This unit remains the only hope for the many children born with CHD on the African continent. The WSPCCA is an oasis of excellence and a national treasure where a dedicated team of professionals strive every day to improve the lives of African children. Because his cardiac defect was so severe Zack has undergone further open -heart surgery. This title is about their journey, Nadine's and Zack's.

This is also a story of hope- Paediatric cardiology is an incredible field progressing at an amazing pace providing children with even the severest forms of CHD a chance at a normal life. This is also a truly South African story- about Africans healing other Africans. This is a story that will appeal to parents everywhere, especially those of 'special' children - those who have had life-threatening disease.
