ABC27 Heart of a Child Program

Children' Heart Group Ecuador

Every year our team of specialists from Penn State Hershey Children’s Hospital travels to Ecuador to perform life-saving heart surgery on children. These children have no source for this level of medical care. We are their last hope.

This year, we’re asking for your help. Please join us by watching abc27 anchor Alicia Richards, as she describes our trips to Ecuador in “Heart of a Child”.  "Heart of a Child" airs on abc27, October 17th at 7:00 pm and again on October 20th at 9:00 am.

You can help support the on-going Penn State Hershey Children’s Hospital mission effort in Guayaquil, Ecuador by pledging your support! During the program you’ll be able to call and pledge your support so our team of specialists can save more children. Please help us deliver miracles at our away games!

If you prefer to pay by check, please write your check payable to Penn State and indicate “Heart of a Child” in the memo line of your check. Send your check to:
