Past Research Projects

Transplant Longevity

By funding life-saving research with a focus on transplant longevity, we have successfully been able to make an impact on the lives of children living with a new heart. When Enduring Hearts was founded, the average transplant lasted just 12 years, now we have successfully been able to impact research here, where the average transplant now lasts 17 years! Our goal is to one day make the first transplant last a lifetime!
