Welcome to the Cardiac Kids Foundation of Florida

Our Mission

The Mission of the Cardiac Kids Foundation of Florida is to provide assistance to families, and their children with heart disease. In addition we fund medical research, education, and charitable health care for children with heart disease through local charitable initiatives and life saving mission trips. Support is provided in the form of financial help and assistance to those families who can not afford prescription medications post surgery as well as travel related expenses for the related families of hospitalized children.

Our main research project involves the archiving and unification of worldwide terms through The International Society of Nomenclatures for Pediatric and Congenital Heart Disease. This is a tool that will assist Cardiac Surgeons throughout the world, now and well into the future.

A portion of our assistance goes beyond financial and involves the actual surgeries, training, education and supply of equipment to communities who otherwise would not have this available to them. For example, our yearly Jamaican Mission Trip headed up by Dr. Jeffrey Jacobs and his team is currently responsible for saving the countless lives through his efforts. The Larry King Cardiac Foundation has been a huge supporter of these annual trips.

Our Inspiration

Congenital Heart Disease

Having had a child born with congenital heart defects, I learned first hand the impact this has on an entire family. Overnight, our lives were turned upside down.

With the assistance of help from family, close friends and professionals, my dream was realized with the formation of the Cardiac Kids Foundation of Florida.
