Thank you for doubling the impact for heart patients like Jack

Because of the generosity of you and many other donors, we reached our Buschbach Match Challenge fundraising goal to benefit Advocate Children’s Heart Institute (ACHI). Longtime Advocate donors Joan and Jim Buschbach graciously agreed to match donations to ACHI dollar for dollar up to $30,000. That means we raised a grand total of $60,000 to help children and adults with congenital heart disease.

Your gifts will help families like Jack’s.

He was born with a life-threatening congenital heart defect that required 2 surgeries before his first birthday.

Because of the exceptional care he received, Jack’s aunt, Kimberly Diehl, made a gift to the Buschbach Match Challenge.

“It was because of such a wonderful team of people that we have this awesome, active kid here with us today. Jack will need another surgery in the future, but we already know that he will be in the best hands possible from beginning to end.  I gave to the challenge because of this great organization and all the great things that they do for Jack and other kids like him,” said Kimberly.

Thank you to the Buschbach family and to YOU for your generous support!
