We are turning three! July 26th marks three years since the creation of Project Heart. Our staff has grown and so has our passion to find a cure for congenital heart disease. Tyler and Erica Thayer founded Project Heart after their son Calvin was born with Tricuspid Atresia and Transposition of the Great Arteries. They saw first-hand how CHD wreaks havoc on the lives of so many families and how little research was being done. Their experiences in the hospital with their son motivated them to call for a change. And so, Project Heart was born.
We are so thankful to everyone who has helped get us to where we are today. By the end of this summer, we will have given $150,000 to congenital heart disease research through five research grants. Thanks to your continued support and donations, amazing work is being done! In celebration of our birthday, we want to raise $25,000 by July 26th to fund our next summer research grant. Want to help? You can donate directly or create a Facebook fundraiser – or both! To learn how to create a Facebook fundraiser watch our video tutorial. To donate directly click here!
