The Kitchen is Moving Ahead!

I just received an email letting me know the family kitchen construction in the Egleston Step Down Unit will begin in August. What a relief and how exciting to see it come to fruition. We could not have made this happen so fast without the generous support of all the donor’s to Emery Funkhouser’s Kisses for Hearts fund.

We have new plans for this year, we would like to raise $10,000 in order to support the CHOA Kids at Heart program and pediatric transplant research.

If you’d like to help us reach our $10,000 goal please feel free to donate here.

Kids at Heart was established to provide a community of support for CHD patients and families. They host several events each year that allow families with the common stress of CHD to connect & enjoy themselves doing things they may not otherwise be able to participate in. We want to ensure as their community grows they can continue to offer the great programs we benefitted from. Additionally, they are kicking off a bereavement group that unfortunately too many families of CHD patients end up finding themselves in. We want to ensure that program can help families like us who tragically lose a child to CHD.

Our vision is to see a world free of CHD therefore we are also donating money that will fund critical research to bring innovative treatments to CHD patients and pediatric transplant patients to ensure better outcomes and long lives.

If you’d like to help us reach our $10,000 goal please feel free to donate here.
