Making a financial donation helps support several areas including:
Creation and distribution of care kits for each pediatric heart patient as they enter Children’s Hospital & Medical Center – Omaha for heart surgery. – Kits contain essential items for lengthy hospital stays like a special keepsake “My Heart Family” poster and a tabby blanket, a water bottle, a children’s book, pen/note pads and information about MHC!
MHC provides financial support to deserving member families while inpatient. These funds may be used for transportation costs, meals, lodging and financial hardships. Any amount, large or small, can go a long way for families that are indebted with everyday living costs while out of work and caring for their children. The goal is to distribute support to MHC members who reach out in their time of need.
Member Conference Sponsorships
Midwest Heart Connection (MHC), provides support for children and adults with CHD. We help support the community by being a proud travel sponsor for parents who are chosen to participate at the National Pediatric Cardiology Quality Improvement Collaborative, a national research program focused on dramatically improving the outcomes for children with cardiovascular disease.
MHC partners with local eateries to provide monthly meals to heart families that are currently inpatient at Children’s Hospital. These are typically delivered on the 3rd Tuesday of the month at 5:30 p.m. in the PICU Lobby. We are working hard to find more sponsors to increase the frequency of free meals offered. If you would like to sponsor a free meal, whether it be a single occurrence or a monthly occurrence, please contact our Director of Development, Triston Thompson, at Triston@midwestheartconnection.org.
