Review for Camp Odayin, Oakdale, MN, USA
Can’t even begin to describe this organization. They are Family! Pure love! Pure care! Pure hearts! My boys are both heart kids!
Review for Mended Little Hearts National Organization, Albany, GA, USA
After the birth of my second heart son, and feeling ALL ALONE..... I decided that I needed to do something for heart families and let them know they are NOT ALONE. Shortly after my decision, I was introduced to Mended Little Hearts- and what it offers families with heart kiddos. I said "THIS IS IT". I took the bull by the horns and started a MLH chapter in my local hometown of Appleton. I met so many heart families, I educated them on living with heart children, I opened the eyes of the community to what CHD means, and I let everyone know they are NOT ALONE! Although I made a difference in my community, I helped other heart families, I spread awareness to physicians, elected officials and the general public- nothing can TOP what MLH did for MY heart and for my family. It helped me "heal" while helping other!! Mended Little Hearts is a great non-profit that I am honored to say "I am a part of"! HOPE~HELP~HEALING~
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
I would make it Protocol in every hospital that when a family is diagnosed with a CHD, a MLH advocate is brought into this families life; just like the genetic counselor, the intensivist. We should be introduced to this family- face to face by the physicians. Having this contact at the early stage of diagnosis is huge for the family. We should be a part of the continuity of care in the hospital programs and the hospitals should feel so grateful for what we can provide for their patients!
