We Reject Rejection

The moment a child receives a new heart, the organ is immediately under attack from their own body. As a result, children are given strong immunosuppressant therapies to combat the rejection.

Prolonged use of these harsh anti-rejection medications have a high risk of damage to the kidneys, liver, pancreas and the intestines. Risk of infectious complications, developmental delays, and even likelihood to cause certain cancers are also possible. These competing considerations make detecting rejection early and accurately imperative, mainly since children don’t often demonstrate the symptoms of rejection in the early stage of disease progression until they suddenly become sick, or even die.

Our ongoing clinical research focuses on finding solutions using new technologies and treatments to improve these odds and identify underlying causes that will unlock the mechanisms of rejection.

A heart transplant is not a cure, yet. We exist to make it one. 

We are Mission Driven Because All Children Deserve the Chance for a Long, Happy Life
