Erika Kate Hope Alliance
Who We Are
A cheerful and smiling 4 ½ year old Daddy's Girl who passed away after complications with her heart transplant in 2006. Erika's memory inspires us to help families like hers.
The faith that a better life is always possible. Hope gives us the courage to go on.
A strong network of care and resources, directed at the common goal to be of powerful good.
Caring for Hearts in Crisis.
Families of a child in medical crisis are suddenly overwhelmed and under-resourced.
In the face of crushing fear and dread, it's hard to breathe. It's even more difficult to make decisions and find energy to keep going.
Families must often choose between paying travel expenses OR their mortgage.
Keeping their jobs OR staying at their child's hospital bed.
Choose to pay the cell phone bill OR the pharmacy co-pays.
The Erika Kate Hope Alliance: a partner that comes alongside to give comfort, support, and aid.
We help parents endure the storm of fear and confusion.
We hold families together when stress is tearing them apart.
We lift the strain.
We introduce God to the story.
We provide short-term financial help, emotional support, and a spiritual perspective.
The Power to Help
No one can do everything to help a family whose child's life is in a medical crisis, but everyone can do something. Every year in the U.S., 40,000 children are born with congenital heart defects. With your help, we can make a difference in their lives.
"Do small things with great love, enter into the broken world, and bring hope."
EKHA Mission (inspired by Mother Teresa)
