Giving appreciated stock to Connecticut Children’s just makes sense. I can help children and support a cause that means the world to me, and I avoid capital gains. It’s a win-win decision.

Cora's Story

Two-year-old Cora was born with a different sort of heart. It had only one big blood vessel coming out of it instead of the usual two arteries—one for the lungs and one for the body. This rare condition, called truncus arteriosus, upsets the body’s oxygen supply system and is fatal if untreated. Fortunately, the specialists at Connecticut Children’s Vincent J. Dowling Cardiovascular Care Center spotted it early. They were able to create a comprehensive plan to correct the problem. Cora went through two separate open-heart surgeries and two catheterization procedures to hold open an artery. And today, she is a lively two-year-old who loves music and who can look forward to a long, healthy life.
