On December 21, 2018, following the Launch Party honoring Luke’s journey and in celebration of Luke’s 1st birthday, Bright Heart Foundation was able to give its first donation, a $10,000 check, to Dr. Bret Mettler and the Pediatric Cardiac Surgery Endowment Fund at Vanderbilt Children’s Hospital. In addition, Bright Heart Foundation was also able to give all 40 families that would be inpatient with their CHD warriors on Christmas Day a $50 bill ($2000 total). The families were surprised and delighted by this gift that was made possible because of generous donations to BHF. Luke’s little light certainly shined bright that day representing all of the babies and their families that support the fight against CHD! Happy Birthday, Luke!
