Big Hearts to Little Hearts mission is to lengthen and improve the lives of the littlest heart patients by funding critical research and programs.
This is a great cause. For little hearts and big.
Just recently diagnosed with Hypertrophic Obstructive Cardiomyopathy. 13 year old Jullian Meehan, Brielle resident, son of our good friend and SUKHA family, Amanda Meehan and one of my son's best friends.
Julian is a 13 year old boy who was recently diagnosed with hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy (HOCM). He had a sports physical and the Nurse Practitioner heard a heart murmur. He went to a pediatric cardiologist who referred Julian to Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. After several visits and multiple tests, the doctors at CHOP diagnosed him with HOCM. The main concern with HOCM is sudden cardiac death.
Julian was very active in sports and loved playing flag football, basketball and baseball. He can no longer play those sports and his activities are restricted. While early detection is important to prevent a sudden tragedy, there is no cure for HOCM. Living with this diagnosis is a physical and emotional challenge.
So we begin our journey of faith and hope that more research and medical advances will find a cure. Attending this event will help with more and more research.
Donation Yoga Class coming soon!! All donations will go to Big Hearts to Little Hearts!
