Ruby’s Wings - helping new hearts
celebrate life’s moments
Ruby’s Wings is a division of the Lauren Faith Miller Foundation dedicated specifically to heart transplant
children and their families. Our mission is to help families and their children celebrate every moment they’ve been
given by providing relief and hope in the midst of an unbelievably difficult life situation. We strive to provide opportunities
to create fun memories and connect with other transplant families in a safe, “transplant friendly” environment
as well as ease some of their daily stress by providing support at home. While we do not yet have the annual support to achieve
all of these goals, we hope to in the near future. If you’d like to help see our donate link.
Managing the care of a child with a heart transplant takes time, planning, and attention to detail. As parents
of a child with a heart transplant, we never gave up on our daughter. Our deepest desire was to enjoy our children fully and
for our children to enjoy each other. Some days were easier than others, and when you add doctor appointments, lab draws,
medication refills, dealing with insurance companies, plus managing any other consulting services it was easy for the fun
stuff to get put on hold. Just like we didn’t give up on our daughter, these parents don’t give up on their children
either. When you’re giving everything you have to someone else, you need people who won’t give up on you. That
is our hope for these families, to provide at least some support to help them celebrate life together and to be some of those
people who won’t give up on them.
Ruby’s Wings was created in memory
of our daughter, Ruby. If Ruby had never lived, Ruby’s Wings wouldn’t exist. But Ruby did live, and our hearts
are forever changed. By carrying this vision of celebrating life for other heart transplant recipients and their families,
we carry Ruby’s life forward and continue her legacy.
