Bravery Bag Fund
The Mended Hearts, Inc. is the largest cardiovascular peer-to-peer support organization in the United States, and its volunteers make over 230,000 visits to patients and caregivers annually. Our mission is to inspire hope and improve the quality of life of heart patients and their families across the lifespan with ongoing peer-to-peer support, education, and advocacy.
Along with its program, Mended Little Hearts, Mended Hearts is the only organization in the nation that supports cardiovascular disease patients and their families throughout the entire lifespan of the patient. Our organization has grown to over 71,000 volunteers who inspire, educate, and provide hope to hundreds of thousands of patients and family members each year. Mended Hearts has a robust network of patients and caregivers that provide services and outreach in hundreds of hospitals nationwide and in local communities. Building communities of support in underserved and marginalized areas can provide life-changing and empowering results.
In addition, Mended Hearts and Mended Little Hearts are trusted providers of patient education via a HeartGuide Patient Resource (print and digital) in English and Spanish, online GoToGuides, Webinars, the Mended Little HeartGuide Parent Resource (print and digital) in English and Spanish, and through regional meetings and educational conferences. Mended Hearts’ programs effectively educate patients and their families about the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of heart disease and about recovery from heart disease. These programs are cutting-edge, and patients, caregivers and family members receive the latest information about treatment options, medications, and care for cardiovascular disease patients.
Mended Little Hearts' Bravery Bag program reaches over 5,000 hospitalized children and their families each year with a bag of comfort and support items that the family may find useful. Items like shampoo and conditioner, toothpaste and toothbrush, as well as a stuffed animal and toys for the child. These Bravery Bags are so much more than a "bag of stuff". They are a critical connection to others who have "been there" during a time that can feel so lonely and isolating.
Our mission starts with you! We appreciate your donations and support to provide the gift of hope.
