From the Heart

On October 31, 2006 Sam Elkins turned 10 years old. Instead of birthday presents, he asked his family and friends to make donations to the International Children's Heart Foundation.
Sam knows how fortunate he is to be living in the USA where we have some of the best healthcare in the world. You see, Sam was born with a heart defect called pulmonary atresia. He was able to get a lifesaving operation right away. Thanks to Sam's generous heart, his family and friends donated over $500 to help needy children with congenital heart defects.
