Our Community Is Heartstrong

Tell Your Story

Camp BraveheartWhether you’re a patient, a staff member or a donor, if you’re part of the Children’s Sibley Heart Center, you are Heartstrong in your own special way. 

It is a badge of honor to be Heartstrong—it means you are passionate about the care and treatment of people with congenital heart defects (CHDs). 

  • Share Your Child's Heartstrong Story

      Our Heartstrong patients manage lifelong conditions. They endure numerous treatments and procedures—often starting when they are just a few days old. But they don’t let these trials stop them. Instead, Heartstrong patients learn and grow from their experiences and serve others in the same situation.

      We want to recognize our patients and families whose lives have been affected by Children's Healthcare of Atlanta. Help us honor your incredible journey and increase awareness of pediatric diseases and disorders by sharing your story.
