Support the VAD Support and Heart Failure Research Fund!

The UK HealthCare Cardiothoracic Transplant/VAD Support Group, also known as Heart to Heart, is a patient support group for patients and families who have undergone a heart transplant or implantation of an artificial heart or ventricular assist device (VAD). The mission of the support group is to provide holistic care for each patient to meet their physical, emotional and spiritual needs during all phases of their care. The support group, which meets monthly, includes cardiothoracic surgeons, transplant cardiologists, heart transplant coordinators, a chaplain, social worker, dietitian and nurses who provide care to these patients every day. Gifts to this fund help provide gas cards, medical alert bracelets, art therapy and mindfulness training for patients who need heart transplants. Donations also go to help provide funding for student-driven research focused on fighting heart failure.

You can support the VAD Support and Heart Failure Research Fund on this page. If you'd like to give to another fund that is not listed, please use the search box in the upper right of this page and type in the desired fund to make your gift. We are grateful for your support!
