Safe & Smart Transition is our Mission
Having heart disease does not make you special, it makes you a WARRIOR!
2HEARTS is a not for profit organization that provides support to children and young adults with congenital heart disease. CHD is is the #1 birth defect in the nation and the leading cause of infant deaths in the US.
2Hearts understands that the transition to adulthood can be stressful, and having CHD makes it even more complicated. We are here to provide youth with skills and support during this transition. We strive to help youth become confident and independent adults.
As kids with CHD transition to adulthood, it is important they learn to take responsibility for their own health and become independent, confident adults. 2HEARTS hosts workshops for teens and their parents that help accomplish this goal. At workshops, 2HEARTS teaches about communicating with medical providers, learning about health insurance, leading healthy, happy lives and much more.
About our organization
All pre-teens, adolescents and families in the larger Denver area who are affected by congenital heart disease have the personal and emotional resources needed to lead stable, healthy lives.
The mission of 2HEARTS is to provide an open and supportive environment for children and young adults with congenital heart disease and their families. 2HEARTS aims to minimize the emotional burden on youth with CHD by educating and supporting their journey from childhood to adulthood.
