During today's episode of Shop for Good, presented by Wells Fargo, I had the pleasure of speaking with Shari of Heart Heroes, Inc.
Heart Heroes provides support to children and families affected by Congenital Heart Disease (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.
