Docs Spinning for Kids Hearts

Philly Spin-In 2019

We are doctors and nurses who help kids with cardiac disease, and are dedicated to the care of sick children. We are clinicians, scientists, mothers and fathers. We ride in the Philly Spin in to support children and families affected by cardiac disease, the amazing and dedicated staff of the Cardiac Center, and to fund research and innovation so that our patients can continue to push boundaries and achieve what they could never achieve before.

Why We Spin:

  • Little hearts need us:  Parents shouldn’t have to hear the words “your child has congenital heart disease.”  More than one million babies are born each year with congenital heart disease.
  • Breakthroughs are upon us: “I can’t think of anything more important than taking a child who has a fatal heart disease and getting them through to live to be a grandparent,” says Matthew Gillespie, MD, Interventional Cardiologist. “We have in recent years made incredible important breakthroughs that nobody else has had in some of the most important issues affecting our patients. We really need the support of philanthropy to make that possible.”

How Can You Help:

By donating and helping us support the little hearts through ground breaking and innovative research here at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.

“From the bottom of all the hearts we touch, from the bottom of all the hearts we work on, from the bottom of our hearts. Thank you.”

— Stephanie Fuller, MD, Cardiothoracic Surgeon
