Events & Support Groups

We have a variety of events throughout the year, including our annual Heart Party in February to celebrate Heart Month.

Mended Little Hearts

Mended Little Hearts is a nationwide organization for parents, caregivers and families of children with heart defects/disease that provides resources and a caring support network to help families work through overwhelming emotions involved with having a child with a heart defect. Mended Little Hearts helps families move forward to find laughter, healing and hope. 

Your local San Diego chapter members invite you to join us at any of our upcoming VIRTUAL Mended Little Hearts of San Diego events until we are able to meet in person after COVID-19 restrictions are released. 

Community events are a great way to meet other families and caregivers in the CHD community to share resources or experiences to support each other.
