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!

80 cents on every dollar directly fund our research and family programs!

Janine Humeidan, Hilliard Lynx Field Hockey player #30 and Hilliard Bradley High School student has been playing field hockey with the Lynx for five years. She is a quiet source of strength and positivity.  Janine is always quick to share her smile and she is a small, but mighty force on the field.

On Saturday, September 4, Janine was seemingly healthy and played in the Lynx field hockey game.  Later that evening, she had a cardiac event caused by a genetic heart condition unknown to Janine at the time.  Since that time, Janine has been fighting a war against this condition. She remains in critical condition awaiting a heart transplant.

What can we do for the Humeidans? All the family has asked is for prayers for their sweet Janine. If you would like to make a monetary donation, the family would also like to help raise money for Enduring Hearts in an effort to help fund research to prolong and enrich the lives of pediatric heart transplant recipients.
