It begins with you.


Our Mission Statement


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 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. 


Meetings are held at St. Luke's Health Education Center, 333 Squalicum Parkway, Bellingham.  All meetings are open to the public at no charge.  For more information please go to our Contact Page to send a message or contact our message line at 360-788-6928.

‘‘Tis The Season”

As we start to prepare for the upcoming holidays, I encourage everyone to mark Saturday the 7th of December on your calendar as that is the date of our annual Mended Hearts holiday party.


As you know, this is a potluck lunch prepared by our members and guests and it is served with a generous amount of holiday goodwill.


This year we are returning to our prior history of participating in the Marine Corps “Toys for Tots” program. We ask that you bring an unwrapped toy to the celebration. We will ask the Corp to send us a few good men to accept your generosity.


Our chapter will be providing beverages and other yummy treats for this event.


Please join us.


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 a informal monthly get-together to discuss the common issues, challenges and successes of being a young heart patient.​
