Mobeoner Donates CHD Mural to Bright Heart Foundation
Incredibly talented artist and Heart Dad, Mobeoner (Eric Bass), created a masterpiece called “Broken Hearts of Gold” and selflessly donated it to Bright Heart Foundation in honor of all affected by Congenital Heart Defects, including his own infant son, Rainn Bass. “The butterfly sewing the heart with the needle and thread represents the heart surgeons. The broken heart of gold represents the innocent children born with broken hearts. The butterflies symbolize transformation, hope, and life. The flowers symbolize growth and beauty,” says Mobeoner. The wall-size mural is located at 217 Willow Street, Nashville, TN 37210 for all to enjoy.
Bright Heart Foundation: Family Update
We know all about the journey of a CHD Heart Warrior because of our own journey with our 3 year-old son, Luke. LUKE unexpectedly ended up in the hospital two times in February during Bright Heart Month 2021. Through these recent hospitalizations, we found out that he will be going in for his third open-heart surgery in April 2021. In honor of our family’s upcoming and ongoing battle with CHD, we share this video from 2019. Please take the time to view it and share LUKE’S STORY!
