It is with our hearts overflowing with joy and gratitude that we want to thank everyone for their support of Noah's Festival of Life and Hopeful Hearts Foundation. Thank you for coming out and experiencing such an incredible day with us in an effort to raise awareness for the #1 birth defect worldwide, CHD. Because of your support, we successfully raised over $40,000. We will continue to help families around the country who are affected by CHD with financial assistance and provide comfort and support with Hopeful Hearts' care package deliveries to children recovering from heart procedures. 

We are proud to have immediately supported families at UCLA Mattel Children's Hospital and Children's Hospital Orange County with a care package deliveries to patients and their families.

On behalf of Noah Bella, my husband, Keith, and the Hopeful Hearts Foundation, thank you to all our supporters, donors, friends and our family for your support.


Love and Gratitude,
The Michaelis Family

We would like to give a special thanks and acknowledge our corporate sponsors and supporters.

Congenital heart defects are the #1 birth defect worldwide.


About NFOL

Noah's Festival of Life originated in 2009 following her three open heart surgeries she underwent that year. She wished nothing more than to celebrate her homecoming with a carnival-like festival.

Our story

We are just one story of a family living with congenital heart disease, but we strive to turn our scariest moments in life into a life filled with hope, acceptance and perseverance.



Our mission is to help as many heart families in need by providing funds for travel, lodging, food, hospital parking, as well as care packages for families during their child's hospitalization.
