A little background on Saving Little Hearts
Few things can be more frightening for a young family than having a baby or small child who must undergo open heart surgery to correct a congenital heart defect.
1 baby in 100 is born with a heart defect that must be corrected through surgery for the child to have a chance to survive and live a long, healthy life. With odds like those, you know someone who has had open heart surgery as a child, or you know parents whose children have had open heart surgery, or both.
Knoxville-based nonprofit Saving Little Hearts sends care packages all over the country that are specially created just for these families. My Family Dentistry is a proud financial sponsor of Saving Little Hearts’ mission, and this contest is to get your baby’s smile (one of our favorite things to see!) on the cover of a calendar that My Family Dentistry will sell to raise funds for this worthy cause.
