Hug a Heart Card Drive 2017



PURPOSE OF THIS CARD DRIVE

The purpose of this card drive, which runs from 1/16/17 to 2/14/17, is to help collect handmade heart theme cards (non-Valentine’s Day) such as Thinking of You, Hello or Just Because cards for many of the Heart Center patients at Nationwide Children’s Hospital during February's American Heart Month.  Each card you make will bring heartwarming encouragement to all who are affected by heart disease - patients, families and hospital staff.

“Congenital heart disease (CHD) is the most common birth defect and results in sometimes very complex disease that require multiple surgery and prolonged hospitalization. The advance in medical care and surgical techniques have improved survival for many of these patients who are born with various forms of congenital heart disease. However, for some congenital heart disease there is no cure and only palliative procedures are able to be perform which though imperfect gives the patients a chance at life. The success of treatment for patients with congenital heart disease has allowed many to become adults. Despite the success, many patients still require many medications, procedures and revisions improve the prior repair. For some patients, the only option is to undergo a heart transplant. Although Heart Month which is occurs in February focuses on important adult onset disease such as heart attacks and stroke, it is a particularly important month for patients with congenital heart disease as they are also at risk of developing these same disease like any one of us. However, given their congenital heart disease the risk of having an additional acquired heart disease makes it even more important for these patients. We hope that the Hug a Heart Card Drive can give these patients some heart-warming messages.” – Dr. Kan N. Hor (Pediatric Cardiologist at Nationwide Children’s Hospital).

We hope that you will be able to join us in this heartfelt cause.  The cards you donate will not only brighten a heart patient’s day during February’s Heart Month but will positively impact that child’s life beyond what you can imagine.   Anyone is welcome to help make the cards, including young children.  In fact, we encourage the children to get involve.  Children love receiving cards from one another!  Thank you so much for your generosity and gift of cards!
