In 2010, the Help-A-Heart Support Group was founded.  Wendy Meyer wanted to expand Help-A-Heart’s mission and had a passion to create a safe place for families of children with congenital heart defects to share their stories, connect with families, and get emotional support.  Our support group has brought in special speakers, including pediatric doctors and staff.  The Help-A-Heart Support Group started out with about 5 families and has grown to over 25 families in 9 years!  We meet every month from 6:00 to 8:00 pm and have other social gatherings throughout the year including a Mom’s Night Out, an Iowa Energy Game, Dreamnight at the Zoo, Pumpkin Patch Outing, and a Summer Potluck.  If you have any questions or would like to be added to our support group mailing list/facebook page, please contact Wendy Meyer.
