For families of babies born with congenital heart disease, there's help – and hope – through the HEARTest Yard. Formed by Carolina Panthers tight end Greg Olsen and his wife Kara after their son was born with Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome, The HEARTest Yard provides healthcare support and services to ease the transition from the hospital to home.
Through a partnership between the Greg Olsen Foundation and Carolinas HealthCare Foundation, the HEARTest Yard Fund offers a range of services, including in-home private nursing care, physical therapy and speech therapy, at no charge to families. The program ultimately aims to help prevent children's complications from congenital heart disease and improve their long-term health.
If you're dealing with a diagnosis of congenital heart disease, you're not alone. For more information about the HEARTest Yard, call us at 704-381-3949.
