Mission Statement

To promote the cure and treatment of children from low income families suffering from heart disease and other afflications by: providing equipment and funds to existing hospitals and similiar institutions for the direct treatment of children; promoting research, training, education, and leadership within agencies, corporations, hospitals and other organizations that can assist the Corporation; and receiving, maintaining, and applying funds, property, and services in furtherance of the goals of the Corporation.

Description

Simply put, we send a pediatric cardiothoracic medical team to other countries for the express purpose of proving "open heart surgery" on babies and children under 12 years of age who suffer from congenital heart disease. In addition our medical team shares our technology with their team so they will become self sufficient eventually and no longer depend on us. 8% of every child born in the world today is born with a congenital heart defect. Pediatric Cardiothroacic Surgeons are few and far between. Research is being done to determine the exact number of surgeons in the USA. All surgery is done at no cost to the families.
