This is an amazing organization, that really does make a difference. They ask for very little from the community, and with each donation, you can learn about the children that are receiving Life Saving Heart Surgery at some of the finest hospitals in America. They have garnered great respect in the community and within the medical community. Brenda Small has worked tirelessly on creative ways of getting monetary support including donation plans for all levels and donating towards the nutritional support programs for the aftercare of the patients.

Brenda Small has been instrumental in brining to light what we take for granted - accessible medical care. She has been a huge champion and advocate for the children that are in dire need of Heart Surgery. This is the only organization that I volunteer for and it's really a charity where you can meet the recipient and see how the fundraised dollars benefit the patient.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I have seen the mother's of the patients, and the gratitude that they have and the tireless efforts of the volunteers to make things happen all at little cost to the organization.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I would not change a thing! I have seen this grow from year one to all that it is today!
