The purpose of the Foundation’s Wishes Fund is to offer financial support to all students who have had a heart transplant and who continue to live their dreams, despite the insurmountable odds that they face. CHF recognizes the challenges that parents and/or guardians of a heart transplant recipient may face. Through the Wishes funds our foundation will assist those parents and/or guardians during certain troubled times concerning unexpected and lengthy hospitalizations of their child.
