Beards for Bella was first held in 2016 when Bella was preparing for her third “planned” open heart surgery to complete the repair of her heart defect. 20 volunteers signed up to grow their “Beards for Bella” for 5 months! Through their efforts we were able to raise over $14,000 and even more amazing was the amount of people we connected with throughout this event.
Throughout Beards for Bella “Take 2” we are hopeful we can make an even larger impact on our Heart Community. We are teaming up with The Mayo Clinic to connect HLHS families and support the work they are doing to provide options for children and adults living with HLHS. More information will be provided on the current trials and treatments their team has achieved and the exciting treatments they are working on.
