The Children's Heart Foundation, Chicago, IL
Lauren Elise Memorial Foundation shared partnership with The Children's Heart Foundation 2011-2017. For specific grant initiatives, please see "Grants Funded".
CHF was founded by parents who lost their 8 year old son suddenly to complications of CHD. They now have chapters nationwide, with a goal to bring health, hope, and happiness to children impacted by CHD. The CHF accomplishes this goal by funding research to advance the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of congenital heart defects.
CHF is the only organization created to exclusively fund congenital heart defect research, and has already directed $4.7 million to various projects across the US and Canada. Lauren Elise Memorial Foundation has teamed with CHF to help fund the most promising CHD research projects.
