In thirteen months, Ella touched the hearts of everyone she met. It only seems fitting that she would continue to make a difference in the lives of children with heart conditions. The proceeds from the Ella Marie Endowment Fund will go to support Pediatric Cardiology Research at St. Louis Children's Hospital. We hope that this research will uncover knowledge and develop treatments that will help save other children's lives.
The beauty of an endowment fund is that once it meets its minimum target, the money is invested and the returns are used for the intended purpose. This means that Ella's fund will continue to provide money for pediatric heart research indefinitely.
Ella's memories will live on in our hearts and her legacy will impact children for countless years to come!
