Do It For The Kids

Supporting: Give Them the Chance of a Lifetime! for Enduring Hearts, Inc.


Campaign has ended.


This year I joined the Board of Directors of Enduring Hearts, an organization dedicated to funding research for children living with a heart transplant.


Enduring Hearts exists to change the brutal realities for the extraordinary children living with a new heart. By funding the critical, yet often overlooked research to help make a transplant last a lifetime. This life-saving research is vital to ensure that children are able to live longer, healthier lives to be able to achieve their dreams for the future.


Children living with a heart transplant endure chronic invasive testing, such has heart catheterization and heart biopsies. They take harsh immunosuppressant drugs to prevent organ rejection, only to be made life-threateningly vulnerable to COVID-19. They are susceptible to developing PTLD, a type of post-transplant cancer caused by medications that prevent organ rejection.

On December 1, 2020, I will be joining Enduring Hearts for #GivingTuesday to raise money to help children living with a new heart the chance of a lifetime – the chance for a full happy life! Together, we can make sure they have that chance.

Let's Give Them the Chance of a Lifetime! 

A heart transplant is just the beginning. 
Most people do not know that a heart transplant is not a cure but only a bridge to life and, that on average, a pediatric heart transplant lasts only 17 years. Sadly, one in four transplants will fail within five years, primarily due to organ rejection. That is why we fund the critical, yet often overlooked research that's needed to give our heart warriors the best chance at a beautifully ordinary childhood. 

We want to help them achieve their dreams for the future.
Our heart heroes have big dreams of what they’ll be when they grow up and we invite you to give to help these kids have the chance of a lifetime - and the chance to be a paleontologist, a firefighter, a ballerina, or a doctor.

Together, we can make an impact.
Since our inception over six years ago, Enduring Hearts has funded over $5.4 million in research and served over 270 families. As the only organization dedicated exclusively to pediatric heart transplant research, your support, and our research are critical. 

Together, we can help them achieve their dreams.
Let's give them the chance of a lifetime today!
