Welcome to HEALING little HEARTS online!
Our mission is to fund research at Boston Children's Hospital that will aid in the treatment and cure of pediatric heart defects ... specifically, research on tissue engineered heart valves.
This is one of the greatest hopes for reducing the number of open heart surgeries over the course of a child's life ... also reducing the risks associated, from developmental impairment to death.
Tissue engineered heart valves will be an exponential leap in the survival and quality of life for children.

Mattapoisett Woman of the Year raises funds for children's heart research
Thanks for making The 6th Annual HEALING little HEARTS Gala & Auction a huge success!
We did it! We exceeded our goal and raised nearly $120,000 at the 6th Annual Healing little Hearts Gala & Auction, bringing our funds to date donated to pediatric cardiac research at Boston Children's Hospital to over $600,000 ! A very big THANK YOU for your part in making this happen! It is only through the generous support of good friends like yourself that we are able to support the important research being done at Boston Children's Hospital.
We continue to be amazed at the out-pouring of compassion and generosity from so many. From the committed volunteers, sponsors, auction donors, caterers, vendors and those who attend our annual event, thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Brady, our hero and inspiration for Healing little Hearts, continues to thrive and love life. We're certain that the efforts and success of the annual Healing little Hearts Gala & Auction will not only change lives of children born with congenital heart defects, but will also SAVE these precious lives.
Thank you again for joining us in this important work that we can all be proud of and for your part in giving hope to little hearts.
With great appreciation,
Marc & Kelly Weglowksi
HEALING little HEARTS was started in June 2007 by Marc and Kelly Weglowski along with their daughter, Jillian, and it immediately grew with nearly 20 volunteers of friends and family. The Weglowski's son, Brady, now 7 years old, was born with a congenital heart defect and has spent many days and nights at Boston Children's Hospital. Among many of the things they have learned during this difficult time, is their desire to give back to Boston Children's Hospital and to help the many children that also depend on Boston Children's Hospital.
Thanks to your generosity, HEALING little HEARTS has raised over $600,000 from its six annual fundraising galas.
Thank you to all of our volunteers, sponsors, caterers, donors, and supporters! Your efforts have helped us to exceed our goals and raise these important funds to benefit Boston Children's Hospital and pediatric cardiac research. Hats off to all of you!
And thank you ... for giving hope to little hearts.
