Life is unpredictable.
Our son Micah was diagnosed with congenital heart disease (CHD) at 20 weeks gestation. At just a week old he underwent his first open heart surgery, and his second surgery at eight months old. The months that followed were the most difficult of our lives.
We were fortunate enough to have a community of support that reached out to help us. However, the reality is many CHD families do not have sufficient support to thrive while living with CHD long term. Often, family resources require out of pocket costs that insurance and state programs cannot cover, or that take so long to kick in; they are irrelevant when the time finally comes.
Our mission is to help families affected by CHD thrive by bridging the gap between their child's medical care in the hospital and living with CHD at home.
We do that by providing items and services that insurance and state programs do not cover, and that friends or family members are unable to provide. Mighty Hearts offers:
