Campaign has ended.


My daughter, Mya, had a heart transplant 8 years ago at the age of 3 and like any parent, I want her to live a long and normal life!

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.
Since our inception over six years ago, Enduring Hearts has funded over $5.4 million in research and served over 270 families. As the only organization dedicated exclusively to pediatric heart transplant research, your support, and our research are critical. 

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

Enduring Hearts is the only nonprofit solely dedicated to funding innovative research that helps kids living with heart transplants live longer, healthier lives.

Our Story

A successful heart transplant should be the end of the journey. But for a child living with a new heart, it is just the beginning. After all, heart transplants don't last forever, the average only lasts about 17 years. 

Enduring Hearts exists to fund the critical, yet often overlooked research needed to help eliminate rejection, prevent life-threatening complications and reduce the risk that a child will need a second transplant. We fund research for promising new treatments, diagnostic tests, and clinical

procedures that help eliminate rejection and long-term complications.

Our goal is to create a world where every child who needs a new heart is able to get one that lasts a lifetime.

Help support the Enduring Hearts mission by contributing towards life-changing and life-saving research today!

You are a heart hero.

Atlanta-based Enduring Hearts launched in 2013 with a mission to fund research that increases the longevity of pediatric heart transplants, improve the quality of life for children living with a new heart and eliminate pediatric heart diseases that may lead to a transplant.

Thank you for your support!
