Leo is now a thriving toddler who can keep up with his twin brother. Please support the Enduring Hearts mission of giving kids like Leo the chance of having his heart last a lifetime! Donate today! 

his 20 week ultrasound detected an abnormality. After two heart surgeries before he was 6 weeks old, Leo’s mitral valve stenosis continued to worsen and a heart transplant was his only option. After suffering a cardiac arrest requiring ECMO, Leo was transferred to a VAD. He was only the second baby of his size to be placed on a VAD at Children’s Hospital Colorado. After battling numerous complications, Leo was able to be listed for a heart 6 weeks later. Leo received the gift of life at 4.5 months old.

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.
Because of the support of generous donors like you, Enduring Hearts has funded over $6.5 million in research, partnering with the brightest minds across North America to solve the complex problems facing our youngest heart warriors. Our researchers are making progress toward discovering treatments designed for children that will preserve their childhood and give them a lifetime of tomorrows. We are collectively driven to advance science to the bedside so that a child's life will not be impacted by a heart transplant within the next decade.

 The 2021 Chance of a Lifetime Challenge Fund is critical to raising community matching gifts on #GivingTuesday, November 30, 2021. Our goal is to raise $150K  which will allow us to invest in one additional pediatric transplant research study aimed at helping children live longer, healthier lives. We know that when community and business leaders like You give,  others will follow!



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