“I was visited by a Mended Hearts volunteer on the morning of my surgery in 2000- and it made an immediate, profound and positive impact on my recovery.  It’s why I became a trained visitor and why I’m now actively involved at all levels of the organization.” – Millie Henn, Temple, TX, member Board of Directors, Mended Hearts
