We raise funds to support the doctors at the Children's Heart Center who are dedicated to providing treatment to these children. The Center opened in 2019 at the The ABC Hospital, Mexico's finest private hospital. Every doctor, nurse and technician at the Center is committed to the health and survival of the children placed in their care.
Kardias funds corrective heart surgery for almost three hundred children a year, with an annual success rate of 98.2 %. The center, established in 2019, is the first pediatric heart center in Mexico. It is a state-of-the art facility. The surgical team is headed by Dr. Alexis Palacios, a pediatric heart surgeon who trained at Texas Childrens Hospital with Dr. Charles Fraser. Dr. Palacios has twenty years of experience operating on the fragile hearts of afflicted young children.
Children born with heart defects whose conditions go untreated suffer long-term physiological damage, shortened life-expectancy, and impaired brain development. The Heart Center provides the highest quality of treatment for poor children who suffer from heart maladies. Kardias upholds the value of human life and the hope of a better future. Every child represents an unknown potential, and the failure to realize that potential represents an incalculable loss. Kardias serves hope.
