It begins with you.


Our Chapter Objectives


We are heart patient and caregiver volunteers, adults young and old, providing support and hope to patients and their caregivers from the diagnosis of heart disease through treatment and beyond.

Mended Hearts

The Bellingham Chapter of Mended Hearts normally meets monthly to offer support and information to all heart patients in our community.  Our speakers are cardiologists, heart surgeons, nutritionists, and other health care professionals who offer insights into improving our heart health. 


For more information please go to our Contact Page to send a message or contact our message line at 360-788-6928.


From our Chapter President, John Heinemann

Behind the Scenes

As you all know, our work at the hospital, the cardio office, and our meetings with you are on hold and will continue to be on hold for an unknown period of time. That said, I want you to know that your chapter members are continuing to work on projects during this down time.


Brad Yeung is developing new training programs for our volunteers, Dianna Konrad is ramping up for our new outreach program for Young Mended Hearts and we are going to be in receipt of money next week from our national office to fund a rebranding of our young mended hearts program. Further, Marilyn Huffman continues to process our membership applications and payments on schedule.

Our board members are calling our active volunteers to check on each other and I hope that in the near future we may be able to put on a virtual chapter meeting, with a speaker, if we are not able to assemble in person.

Please call our hotline or reach out to us by email if you have concerns about our chapter or just wish to talk with one of us. Most importantly, stay safe.


Young Mended Hearts

All young heart patients (teens to forties) and their families are invited to join other young heart patients and their families for an informal monthly get-together to discuss the common issues, challenges and successes of being a young heart patient.​
