SUPPORTING SASKATCHEWAN HEART FAMILIES

ABOUT MENDING LITTLE HEARTS

The Mending Little Hearts fund allows you to make directed donations toward addressing the unmet needs of children living with heart conditions from all across Saskatchewan. Your contributions will improve the health, wellbeing, and survival of these children by:

Providing additional equipment for diagnosis, monitoring, and treatment of their conditions

Establishing educational resources for these children and their families

Developing support services for these families at the time of diagnosis and procedures

Allowing a child and family to attend the highly successful CHAMPS camp programs

CHAMPS Camp

 

The Children’s Healthy-Heart Activity Monitoring Program in Saskatchewan – or CHAMPS Camp, is a program for children between the ages of 7 and 17 years with congenital or acquired heart disease. CHAMPS brings children with cardiac conditions together in a supportive, safe environment that encourages them to build their confidence in physical activity participation and mental wellness.

The camp is funded primarily through the Mending Little Hearts Fund of Saskatchewan. There are also numerous sponsors throughout the year who help make the program possible.

RESEARCH

Research is an exceptionally important and vital part of the Mending Little Hearts fund. Congenital Heart Disease (CHD) is a leading type of birth defect and an increasing number of these children are living into adulthood as a result of advances in surgical interventions. However, children with CHD are predisposed to developing modifiable risk factors later in life such as cardiovascular disease and osteoporosis.
