YesUkraine

Will you join us in welcoming Ukrainian families looking for safe haven in Minnesota?

The war in Ukraine has destroyed neighborhoods and disrupted every part of life for Ukrainians. 25% of the population (15 million) have left their homes behind. Nearly 8 million Ukrainians have fled to neighboring countries.

There is now a two-year humanitarian visa pathway to the U.S., but they must have a U.S. citizen sponsor them. We have created a strong support team, but we need you help! Will you join us in helping these families start new lives?

Your donation will help our families get settled and provide ongoing support with things like airfare to the U.S., food and clothing, housing and utilities, local transportation, and setting up a home. We are committed to help these families until they can fully support themselves.

We are working with the Alight organization to connect with those families in the most urgent situations. Alight has been providing humanitarian and disaster relief services all over the world for 35 years, and we are proud to be at the forefront of their recent Ukrainian initiative. For more information, please visit wearealight.org.

Your support and a donation today will help us be ready when our first family arrives. Even a small donation will help us achieve our goal!

Thanks so much for your support. Please, share with anyone you think might want to help!

HeartWorks/A Cure is in the Works

HeartWorks was created in June, 2020 to accelerate and expand the product development pioneered by the Todd and Karen Wanek Family Program for Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome (HLHS), founded at Mayo Clinic in 2010. The HLHS program has formed a nationwide research consortium and developed cell-based therapeutics to treat CHD, some of which are currently in clinical trials.  
The HLHS program’s team of physicians, scientists, and engineers have a combined average of nearly 30 years of experience across their respective disciplines and have focused this expertise on treatments for the most severe forms of CHD, thereby furthering advanced research in genetics, stem cell biology, clinical trials, and cell-based manufacturing.  The team developed a platform that enables multiple cell-based clinical trials to be conducted simultaneously in collaboration with a consortium of world class medical institutions. HeartWorks will expand the HLHS program product pipeline and grow its ecosystem of partners to scale up development of new CHD therapies, clinical trials, and product launches.
Our ecosystem is a critical component of our success. All of our partners believe in and actively support our vision of transformative product development for the CHD community. We will engender trust with our benefactors, CHD children and families, and partner institutions by sharing data and outcomes at a level not possible before within individual institutions. We will share our successes together.
