About Us

Meet Team Hansen!

Tom and Kat Hansen got married in 2006, had their daughter Audrey in 2012, and their son Harding in 2014. Tom and Kat discovered Harding had multiple severe heart defects when he was 22 weeks gestation. Harding has undergone three open-heart surgeries, in addition to many other surgeries and procedures. We live in Cincinnati, Ohio, and we love going on adventures together. It is our family's mission to raise awareness for CHD families and get them the help and resources they need to live a fulfilling life in the midst of their child's battle with Congenital Heart Disease.
