Charles George and Entrepreneur Impact strive to support two separate charities for the work they do to help children and their families.
The Ronald McDonald House of Charlottesville provides low cost lodging and a home-like atmosphere for pediatric patients 18 and under and/or their families who come to the University of Virginia Children’s Hospital or Martha Jefferson for treatment not available in their home location.
1 out of every 110 infants born will have a congenital heart defect, leading to approximately 40,000 new heart babies every year
About 1,000,000 Americans born with a congenital cardiovascular defect are alive today
Cardiovascular disease is the second leading cause of death for children 15 and under
One of our goals is to help people realize how common CHD is. This will help families and caregivers know they are not alone. Awareness can also help us push for more funding for research.
Mended Little Hearts is a program of the Mended Hearts Inc., a non-profit, volunteer-based organization providing hope, help and healing to heart patients and their families since 1951.
The Mended Little Hearts program works nationally and in communities to support children with congenital heart defects and their families.
