Mended Hearts is committed to advocacy, which we define as making our voices heard to our local, state and national leaders in terms of supporting heart and heart patient-related policies and legislation. As patients, family members, and caregivers, we have a powerful message to deliver in terms of living with heart disease.

Mended Hearts and Mended Little Hearts each has a National Advocacy Chair and committee with geographic representation from throughout the country. This committee works to select the issues that are priority for Mended Hearts advocacy efforts and communicates this information to the chapters and groups.
