Our own sweetheart, Heart Buddy, wants to wish you and your child or loved one a Happy Valentine’s Day from The Shadow Buddies Foundation.

With a chest incision and a mended heart, Heart Buddy was the first Shadow Buddy and has continued to be a friend, sweetheart and educational tool for children with heart conditions for more than 20 years.

Shadow Buddies encourage medical play therapy for hospitalized children, and serve as a way to teach children about medical issues or illness. Visit our Buddies page to see all of our available buddies, including Heart Buddy. Each buddy is designed with a specific medical condition or concern.
