Memorial Hospital and American Heart Association Celebrate Little Hats, Big Hearts

Posted Date: February 18, 2019

GULFPORT, Miss. — Volunteers for the American Heart Association are celebrating American Heart Month by donating 100 crocheted red hats for babies born at Memorial Hospital in February. 

Memorial is participating in the Association’s Little Hats, Big Hearts program, which raises awareness of heart disease, the number one killer of Americans, and congenital heart defects, the most common type of birth defect in the country. The Little Hats, Big Hearts campaign started in February 2014 in Chicago, Illinois.
