Are you one of us? We have survived open heart surgery, experienced a heart attack, had coronary artery bypass or heart valve replacement; some of us are living with a stent or two. Some of us think of ourselves as the “Zipper Club” because we have the suture lines visible when we don the bathing suit and head for the beach or pool. Some of us are caregivers. All of us are survivors and on the Path to Recovery.
If you are a heart survivor or family caregiver, we would like to invite you to our special educational and support sessions held each month in the Jim Moran Heart and Vascular Center at Holy Cross Hospital. Our group is named The Mended Hearts, Inc. with national offices in Dallas, Texas. Visit us online at www.mendedhearts.org. We are the proud Chapter #347 chartered in 2007.
Mended Hearts is affiliated with the American Heart Association and the American College of Cardiology, and we provide support, health information and outreach programs to survivors of cardiovascular disease and their family members. We participate in the Annual Heart Walk in March and support Mended Little Hearts -- children with heart defects and heart disease.
Visit our Chapter and learn how we help ourselves, our loved ones and others in the community. Contact us at 954-229-7961, and we will send you a copy of the next issue of our newsletter, Heart Matters. We also welcome walk-ins on the third Thursday at 10:30AM.
Valet Parking is available at the hospital’s main entrance.
