For children living with a new heart, a life-saving heart transplant is only the start of their journey. Our vision is a world where every child that needs a new heart is able to get one that lasts a lifetime.

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update

We know our heart families have even more of a reason to be concerned about being infected by the Coronavirus (COVID-19). That is why we have compiled a comprehensive list of resources and information about COVID-19 and its relationship to transplantation as well as what measures you can take to stop the spread of infection. For more information about what heart patients should know about coronavirus, please click here.

Schools are closing, family vacations are being postponed and sports games are being canceled. While this viral pandemic may feel overwhelming as an adult, imagine how it feels for a child. As the news cycles and daily adult conversations continue to revolve around the ever-evolving COVID-19 pandemic, parents are encouraged to check in regularly with their kids to see how they’re processing information they’ve heard and coping with the many changes occurring around them, says Melissa Cousino, Ph.D, a pediatric psychologist at C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital. Click here to read her advice on how to talk to your children about COVID-19. 

All transplant patients should follow the recommendations by CDC which are listed on their website. We also ask you to ensure that you have a 30 day supply on hand for essential medications (such as immunosuppressants). This may mean speaking with your pharmacy and requesting an earlier refill. And, as always, consult with your doctor about any questions or concerns you may have. Click here to view our coronavirus resources page.

The 5th Annual Bourbon Gala & Auction was a HUGE Success!

Thank you so much to everyone who was able to attend the 5th Annual Bourbon Gala & Auction on February 21, 2020, at The Foundry at Puritan Mill! We were able to raise close to $1.2 MILLION for life-saving research thanks to the support of our Gala attendees! We brought together the hearts of the room to raise their paddles to also raise over $270,000 in just FIVE MINUTES during our Fund a Need Research Drive! Thank you to our wonderful emcee, 11 Alive's Cheryl Preheim, and our vibrant auctioneer, Dean Crownover for helping us make this our most successful Bourbon Gala to date. Saving Lives is Whiskey Business!

Tell us Your Story!

We are looking to tell stories about real children and families and their heart transplant journey. We have discovered that most people do not realize that a transplant is not a cure and as you know, kids face many challenges before and after their transplant.

We would love to feature a photo and a few sentences about your child to share your family’s transplant story. These experiences will be shared online as well as at our events to help us bring awareness to our mission and the need for dedicated funding to help all kids living with a new heart.

If you would like to help give hope to families like yours, please send a few pictures of your child or your family as well as a short paragraph in no more than 250 words to conner@enduringhearts.org. Only your story and your child's first name and age will be shared, all stories received by April 1, 2020, you will receive a small gift from Enduring Hearts as a token of our appreciation!
We offer many resources and programs to our heart families.
