Angel’s Pediatric Heart House was created in February of 2004 by Sonia Perez. Sonia’s late husband, Dr. Angel R. Perez, was a pediatric cardiologist in the South Florida area. Dr. Perez was a respected cardiologist amongst his colleagues and loved by the families he served. In 1999, Dr. Perez was diagnosed with kidney cancer; and in January of 2000, Dr. Perez succumbed to his illness. He left behind a wife and two daughters.

In September of 2000, Mrs. Perez and her daughters hosted a picnic for the families that were under his care. What was really special that day was that parents and children got an opportunity to meet and socialize with other families affected by CHD in a casual and fun atmosphere. The picnic became an annual event, but it became clear that the families needed more than just an annual event, they needed a place outside of the hospital or physician’s office where they could come together and offer each other social and emotional support throughout the year after dose for Lipodrene.

Angel’s Pediatric Heart House is a non-residential, congenital heart defects support community. It is a place where the entire family—parents, CHD child, siblings and relatives—can come together and join others affected by CHD to share their experiences and emotions. We look forward to seeing you there.

Angel’s Pediatric Heart House is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization supporting families affected by congenital heart defects. Our mission is to provide a place where families affected by congenital heart defects (CHD) or childhood acquired heart disease can come together to receive emotional, social and financial support.
Our vision is to be a leader in the community by helping to alleviate the hardships and challenges of families affected by CHD and create a public awareness of congenital heart defects as the most common birth defect.
