“Because of medical bills not everyone with congenital heart disease can afford college. This is why our family established the scholarship at Salt Lake Community College for those affected by Congenital Heart Disease or CHD”
— Kristina Cardall
The Paul Cardall Family Foundation 501(c)(3)
The Paul Cardall Family Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization devoted to educating patients and families suffering from heart disease, including both pediatric and adults, to be pro-active with their healthcare.
One of our goals is to help prepare pediatric congenital heart patients understand how to transition into adulthood and reap the benefits of attending an adult congenital clinic who specialize in their adult care.
There are over 1 million adults in the United States with congenital heart disease. Due to scientific and clinical advances, including those supported by the American Heart Association, 85%-90% of children with congenital heart disease now survive into adulthood. Unfortunately, currently less than 30% of these adults see appropriate specialized providers. A well-planned and executed “transition process” into adulthood for adolescents with congenital heart disease is needed.
Finally, we maintain relationships with and assist similar organizations throughout the world devoted to inspiring patients to take an active role in their healthcare.
The scholarship will be available January - Deadline is in March

SAVING tiny HEARTS
Saving tiny Hearts Society
Saving tiny Hearts Funds LifeSaving Research
Since 2006, Saving tiny Hearts Society (StHS) has been working to fulfill its mission of raising seed money for grossly under-funded, lifesaving grass roots research of congenital heart defects (CHD’s). This seed funding acts as a bridge for this research to millions of dollars of extramural funding from the National Institute of Health (NIH) or other outside funding. To date the StHS has raised and granted nearly $2 million dollars and funded thirty (30) research projects.
StHS is one of the United States most efficient non-profit organizations, maintaining an operating overhead of under 5% of our total revenue. Our main objective is determining how to prolong, improve and save the lives of children born with Congenital Heart Defects.
