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
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 8 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 $750,000 from its seven 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.
