2018 Eversource Walk for Boston Children's Hospital
Mended Little Hearts, a nonprofit organization, works nationally and in communities to empower children with congenital heart defects and their families through support, education and awareness. Mended Little Hearts is made up of the people it serves—moms, dads, children and families affected by congenital heart defects—along with medical professionals and community members working with these families. Mended Little Hearts volunteers understand firsthand the devastating emotions that often come with a diagnosis of a heart defect or heart disease in a child, and they work to provide educational resources and support that can come best from others who have been through similar experiences.
Our Visiting Program serves heart families while they are inpatient. It can be a very emotional and difficult time while your child is in the hospital. MLH’s accredited visitors are fellow Heart Parents who are there to listen, empathize and offer support to families.

Talking with physicians can be overwhelming and confusing. We’re hoping that these questions can help guide you to understanding your child’s condition and the multiple facets included in their treatment.
