Our primary focus is to encourage and fund research to improve the surgical outcomes and quality of life for patients facing heart or lung surgery. The money raised funds research that directly improves the surgical techniques associated with heart and lung surgery. Improvements can include less intrusive procedures as well as techniques that improve survival rates.
