We are fundraising to give little hearts a BIG chance!
The HEARTest Yard, established in 2013, is the first and only family support and service program for pediatric cardiovascular patients and their families in the Carolinas. The HEARTest Yard, a program under Receptions for Research: The Greg Olsen Foundation, supports families of children with congenital heart disease with in-home nursing care and comprehensive medical services at The HEARTest Yard Congenital Heart Center.
Our goal: A happier, healthier future for heart kids.
"We want the entire Olsen family to know that we will always shout from the rooftops about the compassion of The HEARTest Yard – they are true heroes to share their personal journey with the world. We feel like we joined a terrible club when we found out about Asher’s CHD [congenital heart defect], but the community and the heart of this organization have provided support when we have needed it most. We are one of so many families that have found comfort in their story and are indebted to them for the spotlight they are shining on congenital heart defects." - The Harvey family
