Winter Wishes Impact

The Founders’ Board of Lurie Children’s has made a generous two-year $4.5 million commitment to support Lurie Children’s Heart Center and our dedicated nursing staff. While there have been significant advancements made to help children survive heart disease, Lurie Children’s remains vigilant in ensuring kids not only survive but thrive to lead healthy, productive lives. With your support, the Founders’ Board’s commitment will change the future for children with heart disease, from groundbreaking interventions before birth to exceptional outcomes through our top-ranked heart transplant program and vital follow-up services to support the whole child and family.
