What We Do

Heart Heroes provides support to children and families affected by Congenital Heart Defects (CHD) through the distribution of superhero capes, programs to offer hope, and awareness initiatives to increase funding for CHD research.
A Heart Hero is a child born with an abnormality of the heart that is present at birth called a Congenital Heart Defect. On average over 250 babies are born in Nebraska each year with CHD. Many will undergo open-heart surgery, facing developmental and cognitive delays, among numerous other health issues. With the scarcity of awareness for CHD, the support is absent. Heart Heroes has established a network of support to meet the needs of these families.

Interesting Info

Over 13,500 Heart Heroes have been equipped with their very own custom Heart Heroes' Cape to give them "Super-Powers".
Over 20,000 families, friends & supporters have attended and been impacted by our family support events.
Over $400,000 disbursed through CHD partnerships. Collaborating with other CHD organizations provides the greatest impact.
