Welcome to HEALING little HEARTS online!
Our mission is to fund research at Boston Children's Hospital that will aid in the treatment and cure of pediatric heart defects ... specifically, research on tissue engineered heart valves.
This is one of the greatest hopes for reducing the number of open heart surgeries over the course of a child's life ... also reducing the risks associated, from developmental impairment to death.
Tissue engineered heart valves will be an exponential leap in the survival and quality of life for children.

The 9th Annual Healing little Hearts Gala & Auction!
A BIG THANK YOU to everyone who helped make the 9th and Final Annual Healing little Hearts Gala & Auction such a success!
It was an amazing night and we raised lots of money for the life-saving pediatric heart research being done at Boston Children's Hospital. Thank you to every volunteer, donor, sponsor, vendor, caterer, printer and everyone who attended the big night. A special thank you to our biggest sponsors... Long Built Homes, Tec-Mar Industries, Inc. and Shepard Group, Inc.
With the efforts of so many, we raised $121,000 and donations continue to come in! We missed our goal of hitting the million dollars by less than $12,000… but what we all accomplished was amazing! I'm determined not to rest until we reach the big million… so stay tuned for some smaller fundraising events soon!
Again, THANK YOU!!

Mattapoisett Woman of the Year raises funds for children's heart research
HEALING little HEARTS was started in June 2007 by Marc and Kelly Weglowski along with their daughter, Jillian, and it immediately grew with nearly 20 volunteers of friends and family. The Weglowski's son, Brady, now 10 years old, was born with a congenital heart defect and has spent many days and nights at Boston Children's Hospital. Among many of the things they have learned during this difficult time, is their desire to give back to Boston Children's Hospital and to help the many children that also depend on Boston Children's Hospital.
Thanks to your generosity, HEALING little HEARTS has raised nearly $1,000,000 from its nine annual fundraising galas.
Thank you to all of our volunteers, sponsors, caterers, donors, and supporters! Your efforts have helped us to exceed our goals and raise these important funds to benefit Boston Children's Hospital and pediatric cardiac research. Hats off to all of you!
And thank you ... for giving hope to little hearts.
