The mission of the Second Chance for Life Foundation (SCFLF) is to support individuals and caregivers mentally, emotionally, and financially through the challenges of receiving a heart transplant or left ventricular assist device (LVAD) at the University of Minnesota Medical Facilities.
"Receiving the precious gift of a second chance at life because of the unselfish gift of my donor and my donor’s family is wonderful. I had the total A-Team here at University of Minnesota Health.”
My LVAD presented the opportunity to feel sorry for myself or a new life challenge. I chose the challenge! Connecting with other LVAD patients has helped me conquer the on-going challenges of my new life.
Our family was deeply touched by the support we received from Second Chance as my dad went through his transplant journey. We are thrilled to provide a financial contribution to help their work to continue.
