Who We Are

We are parents, grandparents, sisters, brothers, and friends of children with congenital heart disease. Together we are working to educate, support, and advocate relationships between congenital heart disease families, caregivers, and medical professionals.

We are the people who would like to say to every one of you… “You’ve come to the right place for help! Here’s some information, encouragement, and people to help you along the way—as you are on this journey”. Welcome!

Thank you to Sarah Hart!

       

About Our Founder

Whole Hearts Foundation was established by Matt Hammitt, lead singer with the Christian rock band Sanctus Real, whose son Bowen was born with Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome (HLHS) in 2010.  "Because we've had the experience ourselves, we understand the practical, financial, emotional and spiritual needs these families have.  Whole Hearts Foundation is dedicated to assisting these families, and these hospitals that provide the life-saving care to our children.  We have a huge vision for the foundation and supporting families in their local community."
