Hike For Noah - Live Like Noah Foundation

In Noah's memory, help support UCLA Mattel Children's Hospital to benefit the Pediatric Lymphatic Intervention Program. Donate to the Live Like Noah Foundation (501c3) fundraising drive now!

It's Heart Month and, for the entire month of February, we are doing the first fundraising drive for the Live Like Noah Foundation . We will be raising funds for UCLA Mattel Children's Hospital to benefit the Lymphatic Intervention Program. Not only is this the first dedicated program for pediatric lymphatic interventions on the West Coast, it was created in memory of Noah. 100% of funds raised will help with training. This includes flying doctors and staff to Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, to receive hands-on training by the leading doctors who started the lymphatic intervention procedure and who last treated Noah's lymphatic condition. 

Help us spread the word! We'll be posting updates throughout heart month and we'd love if you can share our posts. Noah touched the lives of so many people. If you have a connection to Noah, please share in your post! This is one of our big pushes for the month and we want to reach everyone possible. Be a part of keeping her legacy alive by donating to this campaign.

Our drive will culminate with a 16-mile hike on February 23rd with Team Live Like Noah in memory of Noah and for all CHD kids like her who are unable to hike because of their heart condition.

We founded the Live Like Noah Foundation to carry on our daughter's legacy of goodwill, helping other kids like her fight CHD and lymphatic disorders like Plastic Bronchitis. Noah was born with congenital heart disease and survived four open heart surgeries, multiple cardiac cath procedures, and one lymphatic intervention. But the toll of the last procedure to cure her from Plastic Bronchitis was too much for her body and she passed on January 3rd, 2017 at the age of 13.  Noah was vibrant, full of heart, loved giving and helping others, and was a widely known advocate in the CHD community. 

We hope you can help us reach our goal and become part of the success of this new program at Mattel Children's Hospital and to assist families impacted by CHD and Plastic Bronchitis.
