What's a Heart Hero?

"As a Boston Children’s Hospital Heart Hero, I will keep making a difference ... until every child and adult with a congenital heart defect is well."

This is the promise our Heart Heroes have made—and kept—in their personal fight against congenital heart disease.  

We believe that everyone who has a heart defect, or has made it their mission to better the lives of those who do, is a hero. These heroes deserve to be celebrated for their strength, dedication and achievements.

Boston Children's Heart Heroes include:

  • Patients
  • Family members
  • Doctors
  • Nurses
  • Other hospital staff
  • Support group leaders
  • Bloggers and journalists
  • Legislators and community advocates
