I was first introduced to Saving tiny Hearts Society in 2010, when I joined the medical advisory board to review grant applications. I served as a member until 2015, when I rotated off. StHS is amazing. From Francie and Brian Paul who are truly genuine and authentic leaders to Larry Kluge who runs an amazing board to all members of the team who have passionate stories and unbounding energy, this is a fabulous society to be involved with- either by donating time or money or auction items for the annual gala, all is appreciated. Even though I'm no longer on the board, I still attend the Gala each year and support their efforts. Having seen first hand the grant review process, I can tell you that the 8 or so scientific reviewers who evaluate each and every application are committed to ensuring that the best science gets funded each year. The goal of this society- to find cures for congenital heart defects- is seen at every level of this organization.

I recently was introduced to this wonderful and caring organization a couple months ago and was amazed by the dedication, enthusiasm and positive energy which filled up the room. The touching stories shared about how the organization was started, the countless lives helped and that it's entirely ran by volunteers so that donations can go directly towards medical research is inspiring. It takes talented and caring people to join a cause and make it a reality. The perseverance and love shared towards a common and honorable goal of saving children from congenital heart defects is uplifting. I cannot express how incredibly genuine and sincere the members are and how much hope they spread to others.

Not only is this cause profoundly underfunded and incredibly touching, but the organization takes every tender approach to maintaining sensitivity while initiating urgency for their goals. The founders of StHS are some of the most amazing people I've ever met and seek to ensure that every dollar possible goes back to helping their babies. If the concept of struggling infants doesn't make you want to get involved, their compassion, dedication and professionalism will. I love this organization with every inch of my heart.

Saving tiny Hearts is a great organization that is comprised of motivated individuals who leverage their ambition and contacts to find creative ways to raise fund for research targeted towards congenital heart defects among children. Over the past nine years they have raised a great deal of funds for Congenital Heart Disease. They have recently created an associate board which is made up of young professionals who work to raise awareness and funds. I am a member and have found the group to be dynamic and passionate.

Saving Tiny Hearts is an incredible and thoughtful organization. They are truly passionate about eliminating the life-threatening effects of Congenital Heard Defects. StHS has a world class medical board that advises them on funding specific Congenital Heart Disease research projects. Over the last 10 years, this nonprofit has grown the awareness around CHD and has funded over 20 research projects in the hopes of one day living in a world with out CHD. This is a national organization that most recently added an Associate Board. Those that are interested in joining the cause should go to the website www.savingtinyhearts.org. Saving tiny Hears is an amazing non-profit with driven leadership. I am excited to see what the next 10 years brings.

In August I volunteered for the "Golf Fore tiny Hearts" invitational and it was a total blast! Saving tiny Hearts Society (StHS) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to raising awareness and research funds for children born with Congenital Heart Disease (CHD).

All of the StHS Board Members, other volunteers, and even the golf participants were so passionate and dedicated to the cause. While volunteering I truly felt like my presence made a difference. I look forward to working with the amazing organization in the future.

Saving Tiny Hearts is a wonderful organization with a genuine mission. They work to fund research for congenital heart disease, which impacts more children than pediatric cancer. It is a noble cause and the founders work tirelessly to organize events from high school art shows to big city galas to create opportunities of fundraising.

Saving tiny Hearts is an incredible group of passionate volunteers who for the past nine years has raised over $1.5M which funded eighteen (18) ground breaking research projects which ultimately will help to improve, prolong and save the lives of countless children born with "Congenital Heart Defects" which is the number one birth defect in the United States. Saving tiny Heart's funding acts as a bridge for these brilliant researchers to obtain far larger grants from the National Institute of Health and other sources. Unfortunately, many of these research projects would not have begun without our support. Saving tiny Hearts is fortunate to have a world renowned Medical Advisory Board that determines what grants are most worthy of funding. They are truly a remarkable group of doctors and researchers who come together to review all the grant proposals received by the organization. They contribute their generous time and effort without any compensation other than the joy it brings them to assist the group in funding the very best research possible.
