How We Began
Mended Little Hearts of SWPA was started by Andrea and Brett Baer after their son, Trenton, was born with a Congenital Heart Defect. They wanted to help other families that were experiencing the same things that they went through on their journey with Trenton. Without Andrea and Brett, Mended Little Hearts of SWPA would not be what it is today. They put years into growing this group, raising awareness, educating the community, and providing support to hundreds of families.
Andrea didn’t stop there! She is now the Vice President of the entire Mended Little Hearts Organization! She is still fighting for our heart children, and looking for ways to continue to support families that have entered the world of CHD’s.
Thank You to Andrea and Brett for starting MLH of SWPA….from the bottom of our Mended Little Hearts!
