Imagine the relief felt by the parents, family, and friends of a 3 year old child who just received a heart transplant. Now imagine how they must feel when they learn that there is a 1 in 4 chance that their child will need another heart transplant within 5 years. No child, parent, family or friend should have to face such a harsh reality!
Research is ongoing to develop technology and medicine that will help improve these odds.
Enduring Hearts funds research to increase the longevity of organ transplants and improve the quality of life for transplant recipients. We give priority towards pediatric heart transplant research. The results of the research projects we fund contribute to the knowledge about many important aspects of clinical and scientific transplantation, e.g. the mechanisms of long-term organ deterioration, the consequence of tissue injury and the emerging opportunities to intervene in these processes.
We had a very successful Georgia Gives Day 2015, raising over $175,000! Our goal is to do even better in 2016, with a total fundraising target of $300,000! Thanks to generous corporate and individual supporters of Enduring Hearts, your donation on Georgia Gives Day will be matched dollar for dollar, up to various dollar amounts, by up to 30 different matching donors! This means that your gift to Enduring Hearts will have a potential 30:1 multiple!
Please give today to help us end the need for repeat transplants, and help children live longer, healthier lives.
