As announced in our September 2014 newsletter, Angel’s Pediatric Heart House has closed its programs and services effective December 31, 2014. The mission of providing financial support to CHD families, however, will continue as the Dr. Angel R. Perez Pediatric Heart Fund at Joe DiMaggio Children's Hospital Foundation, Hollywood, FL. Angel's Pediatric Heart House was founded in memory of Dr. Angel R. Perez, who helped start the pediatric cardiology program at Joe DiMaggio Children's Hospital and it is there where the legacy will continue! Effective April 1, 2015, if you would like to help cardiac kids in need through the fund, please make your donation payable to Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital Foundation (JDCHF) Dr. Angel R. Perez Pediatric Heart Fund.
I am proud of what we were able to accomplish as a grass roots organization and the impact we have made on the lives of many South Florida children with cardiac defects and disease.
All this and more, of course, could not have been accomplished without the generosity of our donors--individuals, corporations and foundations, as well as those who volunteered their services and time. Thank you to my family--Olivia, Gabriela, Michael and Mom--for supporting my vision and passion, my Board of Directors for your time and commitment over the years and I especially must express my deepest gratitude to specific groups and individuals that provided major financial, in-kind and volunteer support over the years:
Foundations, Corporations, Businesses and Groups
To all the cardiac children - you are amazing, courageous super heroes who inspire us all to live life to the fullest, love as if there is no tomorrow and to be grateful for everything!
Grateful to serve,
Angel's Pediatric Heart House
