A transplant is not a cure, but a bridge to life. The average heart transplant lasts only 17 years. One in four transplants will fail largely due to organ rejection. Of those who have another transplant, nearly half will not survive.
Anti-rejection drugs and rejection detection procedures negatively affect their quality of life. Enduring Hearts is the only nonprofit solely dedicated to research that helps kids with heart transplants live longer, healthier lives.
We fund the critical, yet often overlooked research needed to eliminate rejection, prevent life-threatening complications and reduce the risk that a second transplant will be needed.
