ANGELS PEDIATRIC HEART HOUSE
November 28, 2010

Our son had heart surgery 2 years ago this month. We had known he would need surgery around age four, but he started having problems at 28 months. He had his surgery within a few weeks, and we got invited to a Heart party at the park. This was where we met Sonia, and she told us about Angels Pediatric Heart House. It was so amazing to me that she set up this foundation after her husband passed. He was a Pediatric Cardiologist. Sadly enough, our sons surgeon passed just 3 months after his surgery. Sonia answered so many questions, and was sure to introduce us to many other families. We have attended many events with APHH, including a show in a big tent, farm rides, and numerous parties with many other families with kids that also have heart disease. They also include face painting, great food, bounce houses, and bowling. We are able to attend the Christmas parties the last two years as well. To our surprise, they gave both our son and daughter a Christmas present. It seems like Sonia really is just concerned for the kids. I know she would help us whenever possible. look forward to the day we finish schooling, and can start giving back to APHH. The money gets used very wisely.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

All events that have been thrown since early 2009. Our son loves his heart buddy. It looks just like him!

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Make it larger. Sonia is such a selfless person.
