WakeMed Program Featured for Mending Hearts

Along with the medical implications of suffering from a heart condition can come stress, worry and fear. This not only pertains to cardiac patients and survivors, but to their loved ones as well. For many people in this situation, it is comforting to know that they are not alone.

Mended Hearts of the Triangle is a national organization with a local WakeMed chapter. It’s a support group that meets monthly to offer camaraderie and provide education and activities for cardiac survivors, their family members and medical professionals in the cardiology field.

Recently, the Midtown Raleigh News and the North Raleigh News featured a piece on WakeMed’s Mended Hearts chapter, including interviews with group members, for their “Faith in Focus” section. We appreciated these publications helping us spread the word about Mended Hearts and its availability to local cardiac patients who might be looking for extra support. Learn more about Mended Hearts.
