Our volunteer photographer Eric Jong was there today when Professor Richard Harper and the talented team from MonashHeart repaired the Veronica's heart. Eric said it was it was "inspirational to be able to spend a little time with such an amazing individual and witness a life changing moment".
Veronica, 18, who was born with ASD (a "hole in the heart") and has lived with pain and breathlessness for as long as she can remember, now has a healthy future.
Our thanks to Eric for these amazing images, and to the wonderful team at MonashHeart and Monash Health.
