My Heart Wall is a Mother-Daughter owned company that was founded on the back of an incredibly inspirational and very personal story:
On New Year's Eve of 2014-2015 my husband and I finally closed on a family home that we felt was a place worthy of raising our miracle daughter! Although the home was beautiful in terms of its structure, it also required major updating throughout. I had designed many spaces before, but this project was different. Every corner had to have personal meaning to my family. Every selection was highly considered. And it was often that I found myself saying that "I have poured my heart into this design" which was particularly true as I developed the concept for this personalized wallpaper!
The end result of the project is the creation of My Heart Wall! It's a beautiful, clean and timeless display of pictures of both sides of our families past and our little miracle daughter. This wall of our family memories and experiences has truly become the heart of our home and evokes emotions in all of us every time we stop to look at it. Back in 2013, when our daughter (who I will refer to as Baby O) was born, she also required open heart surgery when she was just a few days old. It was an incredibly difficult time on all of us. Although it has been a long road I am beyond happy to say that she is thriving today and is one of the happiest children on this planet! My Heart Wall is a celebration of my daughter and her joyful life!
My Heart Wall is a Mission Driven Company that Supports Pediatric Cardiology Initiatives
Pediatric cardiology is a very unique part of medicine that needs more awareness and support. Due to this need and our unwavering gratitude for those who gave our daughter a chance at a full, happy and healthy life we have decided to not only name our company, My Heart Wall, in honor of the road we’ve been on but more importantly, to bring awareness and support to the world of pediatric cardiology and congenital heart defect research. Every purchase from My Heart Wall will automatically include a donation to the following remarkable institutions:
Texas Children’s Hospital Heart Center: has been widely noted as one of the top pediatric heart centers in the world. Texas Children’s Heart Center has pioneered many now-standard procedures and therapies related to the diagnosis and treatment of children with complex congenital heart conditions and we want to ensure that this life saving work is further supported through our donations. TCH saved our daughter’s life.
Ronald McDonald House Charities: there are currently 322 Ronald McDonald’s Houses in 57 countries and regions that provide over 7,200 bedrooms. These houses offer a place to stay for families with children undergoing treatments or being hospitalized. During our daughter’s time in the hospital we saw how crucial these services were to families like us. We believe that children undergoing any medical challenge needs a strong support network and the Ronald McDonald House provided that to us so that we could provide the support to our daughter.
The Pediatric Cardiology Department of the Cleveland Clinic Children's Hospital: has played an integral part in our daughter's ongoing care. Their commitment to lifelong management of congenital heart disease through collaboration with the Cleveland Clinic's nation-leading adult heart care program will undoubtedly result in more seamless transitions to adult care for young survivors of early intervention.
The Children’s Heart Foundation: since its inception in 1996 the Children's Heart Foundation has successfully funded over 70 congenital heart disease research projects, remaining true to it's mission of funding the most promising research to advance the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of congenital heart defects. This remarkable organization was started in honor and memory of a little boy named Sam who was born with a challenged heart. My Heart Wall is honored to help this foundation aid in their goal of saving one child at a time.
