Jameson's Army is a non profit organization (501c3) dedicated to raising awareness and funding for children and families affected by congenital heart defects (CHD) in the Pittsburgh, PA area. Jameson's Army was formed in honor of Jameson McKain, who was born with a heart condition known as Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome and received a heart transplant at 11 months old (pictured left). Currently, Jameson is 3 years old and thriving!
Jameson's Army strives to help the families at The Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC (CHP), The Children's Home and Lemieux Foundation, Your Child's Place and many other medical facilities and families touched by CHD in the Pittsburgh, PA area.

JAMESON'S ARMY is proud to announce that we just purchased 4 family rocking chairs from Franklin Interiors for Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh heart center! Some benefits include:
*Normalization for our infants, patients with developmental delays, and parents who would often rock their child at home.
*Vestibular stimulation to facilitate this development
*Vestibular movement to promote coping (from not feeling physically at baseline, for pain, anxiety)
*More comfortable than other chairs hospital provides
*Repetitive motion that supports infants and those with cognitive developmental delays or on autism spectrum, or anyone who is not at emotional baseline (soothing)
*Large enough so all body sizes can utilize and enough room for parent and small child as well.
This was the purchase from our Golfing FORE Little hearts event! Thank you all for your continued support for the never ending fight against CHD! CHD = NO CURE
The chairs are ordered and should be arriving soon!
