New Heart Mom?

If your child has recently been diagnosed with a CHD, you can request one of our ‘Brave Little Heart’ newborn care packages, apply for a grant, and search for additional resources.

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.

Giving Back...

On August 16th, 2020 the Giving Committee was formed to ensure we do our absolute best at giving support in various ways to local heart families. Our board believes this committee is vital and must be led by an exceptional, hard-working individual dedicated to our cause and be knowledgeable in congenital heart defects.

As a local heart mom, Haley Sparks is more than qualified to represent Remington’s Heart Foundation and knows firsthand the struggles and joys associated with CHD.

Our Mission

Our mission is to provide financial and emotional support to families of children diagnosed with a critical congenital heart defect. We provide assistance to these families when they need it the most. This allows them to solely focus on their warrior's care without the added stress of bills piling up. These costs include, but are not limited to: travel expenses to and from medical facilities, food expenses while away from home, along with lodging expenses while receiving care.

Because of her...

Our journey in CHD life was brief...

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.
