Making a Difference in the Lives of Heart Families of Nevada

The board of Children’s Heart Foundation is comprised of noted Las Vegas area business leaders, physicians, and informed and engaged parents. The business leaders on our board contribute their valuable insight, while the physicians monitor the medical objectives of the Foundation. At the heart of our Foundation, however, is a passionate group of parents who have gained firsthand knowledge of the emotional and financial toll exacted by a child’s heart problems. This diverse and talented board is dedicated to fulfilling Children’s Heart Foundation’s mission to make a difference in the lives of heart families.
