At Kellen’s Big Heart Fund, we support little CHD superheroes and families of the Heart Institute at Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital. Every year, hundreds of surgeries to repair congenital heart defects are performed to save the lives of the tiniest of fighters. Their strength and resilience are what make them superheroes and an inspiration to us all!
While we may not all be facing the battles they have overcome, we
ALL have the ability to become superheroes! From #GivingTuesday (November 28th) through December 31st, you can join our #BeAHero campaign and make a big difference in the life of a little hero. Help us reach our goal of $700 today!
I am supporting the Big Heart Fund because kids should not have to stop being kids when they become patients in the CVICU at Le Bonheur. Thanks to the Big Heart Fund, patients still have access to age-appropriate toys, books, games, support, and means for their families.

I’m Becca! I am a wife, RN at Le Bonheur, and the mom of one amazing kiddo! After following Kellen’s journey on Facebook, I was so excited to cheer from the sidelines and hope that one day I would have the chance to care for him. Though that time never came as Kellen passed away waiting for a heart transplant. I continued to follow the Big Heart Fund and jumped on board with financial support as soon as it began! I want to continue to do whatever I can to make sure kiddos and parents get the support they need, from the bottom of my Kellen-sized heart!

My name is Wendy and I am the mom of a Special Needs, medically complex miracle named Liam. I followed Kellen’s journey and his story and courageous fight inspired me. The CVICU is such an important part of the medical care that is provided at Le Bonheur. The work that Kellen’s Big Heart Fund does for the families in the CVICU is so worthy and important. Being hospitalized takes a toll on families but a warm meal, friendly face, and the awesome superhero capes go a long way to brighten their day! Please consider supporting this worthy cause!

Hi! I am Lolita Holmes, wife to Chris Holmes and mom of two sons, Christopher and Jason. I have a passion and deep desire for giving. Katrina is my drive in support of the Big Heart Fund. Her awesome display of faith in God during Kellen’s illness and passing moved me to want to do whatever I can in support of this cause. It is my prayer that NO parent has to go through what she went through, but if they have to, I pray that there is always someone in their lives supporting the efforts and giving them the hope that she had and has!
