Cook Children's Mended Little Hearts is a support group for parents of children with congenital heart defects. This parent-led group provides a way for parents to talk one-on-one with each other, sharing their experiences, concerns and questions.
Through collaboration with the medical center, there are sometimes guest speakers such as CV nurses, ICU staff, O.R. nurses, CV surgeons, cardiologists or Child Life staff to answer questions parents may have related to CV surgery and the care of their child.
Meetings are held the 2nd Monday of every month at
Cook Children's Medical Center, from 6:30-8:30p.m. in Pavilion classrooms 4 & 5, located below Starbucks. Children are welcome at the meetings. Any children attending must be free from fever, vomiting, diarrhea, cold symptoms and skin rashes.
Child life and our volunteers will be here to help with the kids. A light dinner and beverages will be served.
Activities throughout the year include:
Fall Festival with costumes, face-painting, and candy
A CHD Awareness Dinner in February for heart month.
Occasional speakers regarding different topics about CHD.
