Help us make a video for TOFS Awareness Week 2021!

Published: Tue, 2nd February 2021, 02:00:00 PM



As part of the 2021 TOFS Awareness week we’d love to produce a new video featuring some children/teens/adults born with OA/TOF.  Here’s one we hope to include, sent to us by Max Merrett, we think it’s great.  Why not give it a watch for some inspiration? 

All you have to do is record your video on your mobile device. The star of the video just needs to give their age, describe the condition, (in their words) say what needed to happen to make them better and tell us how they are now.  The video can be very simple or they can use diagrams or make props too.  The more creative the better.  Deadline for your videos: Midnight Sunday 14 February!

Please try to keep the message to two minutes or less, film in landscape and leave a small pause before and after your message – for full details and guidelines for filming click here.  For more inspiration watch this short video made by children born with OA/TOF in Italy.  

Mini-movie-star Max Merrit!




Once you’re done, just email us at and we’ll send you the telephone number of the TOF dad James (who is editing the final video free of charge), so you can drop your video over on WhatsApp.  We can’t guarantee all videos will be used, but why not, give it a go.   

Best of luck! We can’t wait to see what you produce
