How We Help

Our programs address the financial and emotional wellbeing of patients and their families and caregivers. We work with hospitals to provide financial assistance and other immediate support to pediatric and adult patients awaiting or undergoing a heart transplant or critical cardio-thoracic surgical care.

Our Emergency Fund helps to alleviate the unanticipated financial burdens patients and their families experience when facing a lifesaving heart procedure.

Our Community Support programs recognize the need for emotional support and solidarity within the heart community. We organize therapeutic and recreational programs for patients and families in hospitals several times each year.
