Hope for Hearts

555 University Ave, Toronto, ON M5G 1X8





Hope for Hearts campaign “Make a Moment Happen” recognizes that the day-to-day moments with children represent the real essence of a family’s life and are a privilege for many families. By supporting Hope for Hearts, donors will give many families of children with heart disease the opportunity to build their moments and create their book of memories. Each year in Canada, 1 out of every 100 babies born has a heart defect and more than half need surgery to survive. Most children with heart disease, despite the excellent surgical outcome, are not “cured” but must live with their conditions. Modern medicine has given us the possibility to save many children born with congenital heart disease, but it is our responsibility now to make sure that they will have a good quality of life and that they live up to their maximal capability. With the help of donors like you, we can support programs that drive change in children’s lives. Hope for Hearts events are designed to offer attendees an exciting and dynamic experience all while helping to fund important programs.


Hope for Hearts was founded in 2015 by Dr. Barbara Cifra to raise awareness about the importance of supporting programs that focus on how improve the accuracy of diagnosis and promote healthy life-style, we directly impact outcomes and thus touch lives of children and families.


You can donate directly via our website or you can participate in events advertised here on Toronto Charities.


Events are published both on the Hope for Hearts website and on Toronto Charities where possible. Please contact us directly for the fundraising ideas or any volunteering opportunities.
