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:
- Family members
- Other hospital staff
- Support group leaders
- Bloggers and journalists
- Legislators and community advocates
