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 and partners with local organizations like Midwest Heart Connection, Bags of Fun, Munroe Meyer Institute, UNMC and Children's Hospital to support these children and their families during their time of need and beyond.

Interesting Info

Over 20,000 families, friends & supporters have attended and been impacted by our family support events.
Over $400,000 disbursed through CHD partnerships and research initiatives. Collaborating with other CHD organizations provides the greatest impact.
