Eric De La Cruz Hope for Hearts Foundation
The Eric De La Cruz Hope For Hearts Foundation has been formed to honor the memory of Eric De La Cruz and fulfill his wish that no heart transplant patient would ever again have to suffer because of a lack of insurance or the inability to pay for life-saving medical treatment.
On July 4, 2009, Eric De La Cruzran out of time waiting for a life-saving heart transplant. Founded by Eric’s sister, Veronica De La Cruz, the Hope For Hearts Foundation will provide financial assistance, educational resources, and advocacy for heart transplant patients and their families as they face the daunting task of getting a second chance at life. Eric's struggle even inspired a grassroots campaign, led by his sister Veronica, to support real change in healthcare through "Eric's Law."
