Broken hearts have been broken all over the world.
Here’s a look at some of the best and worst.
The Australian Heart Foundation’s Broken Hearts campaign is one of the most well-known in the world and the cause is often overlooked.
A photo of a baby with broken heart is shown at the Victoria Hospital, Melbourne, in 2011.
This image of a heartbroken woman with broken ribs and a scar on her neck is on display at the National Gallery of Australia.
Australian artist Katerina Schlosser has had her broken heart tattooed onto her chest, back, belly and arms.
“We’re in shock,” Ms Schlossers mother, Joanna, told News.co.au.
She said the tattooed heart symbolises her daughter’s “broken heart”.
“My daughter has had a heart condition, which is very rare,” she said.
Her daughter’s family had to wait a decade for a transplant.
Ms Schloss, who is originally from the Netherlands, said the broken heart symbolised the need for support and compassion.
After her daughter was born in 2009, the family was told that she was not viable, and that her heart was not in the right place.
For five years, she spent $20,000 on treatments to help her.
Eventually, she got a new heart, which was implanted in May 2014.
In April this year, Ms Schlosseler was able to see a specialist who performed the heart transplant, after which she received the tattoo of a broken heart on her arm.
Since then, her mother said she has felt a lot of empathy for the family.
But Ms Schosseler said she also had to deal with a lot stigma around broken hearts.
“[It] is a very big taboo topic and people are scared,” she explained.
When Ms Schloe was diagnosed with a brain tumour in 2017, her family received support from the Royal Society of Victoria.
Now, her daughter is going through chemotherapy to help stop the spread of the cancer, and she has been told she is a “good candidate” for a future heart transplant.
