University of Florida and Wolfson Children's donate the cost of inpatient hospitalization and physician services for heart repair, while Patrons of the Hearts provides $5000 to help cover the costs of supplies, housing and incidentals for each child.

We provide the best medical care available for the treatment of heart disease to children born in remote or underdeveloped parts of the world. Our goal is to raise $2,000,000 for the endowment funds over the next three to five years to continue providing high quality pediatric cardiac care to these children in perpetuity.
