“Few things are as traumatic for parents as learning that their child or newborn has congenital heart disease. Mended Little Hearts has been a steadfast helper at these times supplying support and even a ‘travel pack’ for mothers of newborns who need to be life-flighted to another state for heart surgery. As the old song says, “Nobody does it better!”
