New Orleans Chapter - Louisiana Pediatric Cardiology Foundation

New Orleans Chapter

In early 2016, LPCF established a New Orleans Chapter to serve families in and around the Greater New Orleans Area. Led by volunteer heart mom, Trish Tierney, fundraising is now being done in this area to provide grants for families during their child’s heart surgery. Individual candidates must meet the following criteria to be eligible to apply for a grant:

  • Louisiana resident for the prior 12 months (unless under 12 mos. of age)
  • Resident of the Greater New Orleans Area which includes Jefferson, Orleans, Saint Tammany, Saint Charles, Saint John, Plaquemines, and Saint Bernard parishes; OR patients receiving care from a pediatric cardiologist at Ochsner Health System for Children in Monroe who reside in north Louisiana
  • Traveling within or outside of the state of Louisiana for a child’s heart surgery
  • In need of financial support due to expenses incurred as a result of a child with a congenital heart defect
  • Referred by a pediatric cardiologist whose primary practice site is in New Orleans or Monroe

New Orleans Chapter grant applications are available at Ochsner Pediatric Cardiology, or dowload the file below to print and complete. The application MUST be completed entirely and will not be processed if incomplete. This includes the surgery date and name & location of the hospital the child is traveling to. Completed grant applications should be submitted by fax to LPCF at (225) 910-6860 or mailed to the following address:

2137-A Quail Run Dr. Suite A
Baton Rouge, LA 70808

Once a completed grant application has been received by LPCF, it will be processed and reviewed by the New Orleans Chapter board committee. Following review, LPCF will contact the parents to inform you if your application has been approved. If approved, a check will be mailed to the address provided on the application. The entire process from submission to receiving a check may take 2-3 weeks, so please submit your application when a surgery date has been scheduled.
