Young patients at the Children’s Hospital at Montefiore pumped up the beat at the annual Pediatric Heart Party on Thursday, February 16 to celebrate their heart health with friends, families and medical teams at CHAM.

Nearly 100 attendees, including children who have been treated for a wide variety of heart conditions, and their families enjoyed arts and crafts, games, face painting, dancing, live music and food as part of Montefiore’s extensive Heart Month activities.

The annual kids’ party was co-sponsored by the Family Learning Place at CHAM, the Pediatric Heart Center at CHAM and Harboring Hearts, an organization providing financial assistance to patients awaiting or undergoing a heart transplant or critical cardio-thoracic surgical care.
