Our History
Mended Little Hearts is a program of the Mended Hearts, Inc. Mended Hearts has been providing hope and support to heart patients and their families since 1951, when four heart patients in Boston, Massachusetts came together to discuss their heart surgery experiences. They quickly realized their shared stories provided both hope and healing in spite of their circumstances. In 2004, Mended Hearts local and national leader, Tita Hutchens, recognized the unique need for children with congenital heart defects and their families. The earnest desire to provide support to the "littlest heart patients of all" led to the formation of the first two Mended Little Hearts groups – one in Fresno, California and one in Hollywood, Florida. Our local chapter was started by a local Heart Mom named Vanessa West.
