Save a Tiny Heart
Every year, approximately 250,000/300,000 babies die from congenital heart disease* due to lack of surgical treatment in the countries where they were born. This December, please join NOVICK CARDIAC ALLIANCE in our first-ever SAVE A TINY HEART end-of-the-year campaign to raise critically needed funds for our international programs.
December is an important time to support children in need and your gift to NCA will help save a child’s life. While our fundraising goal is $50,000, no donation is ever too small and working together—as an NCA community—we can fight congenital heart disease around the world. Please consider a tax-deductible gift this December and thank you from all of us at NCA!
“Thank you for making our lifesaving work around the world possible. Please consider a gift to NCA this year and be part of making real change for children worldwide.”
– Dr. William Novick, NCA Founder & Chief Medical Officer

The Novick Cardiac Alliance
Honors Friend & Humanitarian
Brigid Scanlan Eiynck
Last year, Novick Cardiac Alliance lost Brigid Scanlan Eiynck, one of our greatest friends and supporters. Because of Brigid’s remarkable contribution to our work across three decades, NCA would like to express our gratitude and memorialize Brigid throughout 2019.
“Brigid was without a doubt one of my earliest supporters. She was a committed friend and timeless donor of cardiac surgical equipment, until just 3 or 4 weeks before she passed,” explains Dr. William Novick, NCA's Founder & CEO. “She was kind-hearted, jovial, always happy, and always looking for a way to help you help those who were less fortunate.”
NCA invites you to learn more about Brigid in a story from the Star Tribune.
