Medically-fragile children and their families are an integral part of our community as a result of our proximity to state-of-the-art children’s hospitals. Families providing care for a medically-fragile child with complex health conditions are often overwhelmed emotionally and financially. Frequent hospitalizations, coordination of care, stress on the family unit, maintaining employment, and mounting medical bills create multiple challenges. With this in mind, the Doherty family has founded Tender Hearts, Inc., a non-profit, 501(c)(3) corporation.
