What is CHD?

Congenital heart defects (CHDs) are the most common type of birth defect.

CHDs are present at birth and can affect the structure of a baby’s heart and the way it works. They can affect how blood flows through the heart and out to the rest of the body.

Little Hearts, Big Hats

Many of you have heard that the American Heart Association ended its long-standing program called Little Hats, Big Hearts, due to the possibility of SIDS.

Remi used one of the little red hats that someone knitted out of love and generosity. When we heard the AHA program ended, we wanted to give those compassionate yarn crafters a new program to be involved in. 

Our mission is to provide support both financial and emotional, for families of children diagnosed with a critical congenital heart defect. Our goal is to provide assistance to families with extra costs incurred while caring for their affected child. These costs include but are not limited to: travel expenses to and from medical facilities, food expenses while away from home, along with care and lodging expenses while receiving care.

About Remington's Heart Foundation

Our History

Remington was born on February 1st, 2017 with a rare and incurable critical congenital heart defect called HLHS. Her parents were given three difficult options that no parent should ever have to choose from. Ultimately, they chose to give her a chance at life through open-heart surgeries. Remi was a rockstar, and she beat all of the odds after her first open-heart surgery. Right before she turned 2 months old, she passed away due to complications caused by her complex heart. The Remington’s Heart Foundation was formed in honor of Remington. We are dedicated to helping families of babies and children with congenital heart defects because we have been in their shoes, and we know their struggle.

Why We Help

We help simply because it’s the right thing to do. Heart families have enough to worry about while their child is in the hospital. We want them to be able to solely focus on their warrior without the added worry of bills accumulating. Remington’s Heart Foundation is dedicated to helping alleviate some of their stress through financial and emotional support.
