The JDF was established with the goal of helping other children and their families fight cardiac diseases and offer support and encouragement to all those affected by pediatric heart conditions. The foundation looks to promote awareness of cardiac diseases and to aide in further scientific and medical research of pediatric heart conditions.

In order to fulfill our mission we have partnered with and provide ongoing funding to the following organizations:

Children's Hospital Colorado

The Jayden DeLuca Foundation is currently working with The Children’s Hospital in the Denver, Colorado area.  “One of America’s top hospitals for kids” as reported by U.S. News and World Report. They pride themselves in their work with children both in and out of the hospital room.

St. Luke’s Children’s Hospital, Boise, Idaho - The Family Resource Room

On February 27, 2013, The Jayden DeLuca Foundation officially opened The JDF Family Resource Room in St. Luke’s Children’s Hospital. This place was created as a place for families to go when in the hospital to get a few minutes away, meet with doctors, research news they have just learned, contact family members with medical updates and more.

“I wanted to thank you again for your gift. The money has already gone to good use. There was a patient from Idaho with PH that needed oxygen on the airplane and we could not get it funded, so we used Jayden’s fund to pay for it so the family could go home sooner. We have recently sent in 4 different pulmonary hypertension papers to medical journals on different aspects of PH in children.”

“Fifty years ago we would have known her heart was the problem but have not been able to repair it. Fifteen years ago the heart/lung bypass machine was not advanced enough and would have destroyed her kidneys during her surgery. It is only today, with all our medical advancements, that my baby could be ok. The words thankful do not even begin to describe how we feel.”
