Team Harboring Hearts is headed to the NYC Half Marathon in 2016! Funds raised through this event will help provide essential support to heart patients and their families when they need it the most.
In 2015, Harboring Hearts helped heart patients and their families access lodging, cover rent and utilities, purchase food and medications, and pay for transportation. Our community events brought comfort and joy to hundreds of patients and families in three New York City Hospitals. We expanded our reach to Lucille Packard Children's Hospital in Stanford, California, and began new partnerships to help temporarily house more heart patients than ever before. Your contribution will enable us to continue our work and increase our impact.
Here’s what families of heart patients are saying about our support:
“When my son got his heart transplant, we wouldn’t have had a place to stay. We have been able to heal better because we have had less stress on our minds.”
❤ Mother of 6-year-old heart transplant recipient
Harboring Hearts helped with lodging and funding for long-term housing and utilities.
“Thanks to Harboring Hearts, I had the opportunity to meet people that were experiencing the same circumstances as my baby -- we learn from each other.”
❤ Mother of 2-year-old heart transplant recipient
