Team Nolan, the paediatric program of the Cayman Heart Fund, has donated to a local family with a child undergoing cardiology healthcare. “Every 15 minutes a baby is born with a congenital heart defect (CHD) and one in 100 babies are born with a CHD.” says Ailian Evans, CHF Board member and founder of Team Nolan. “Our mission is to raise awareness about babies born with CHDs and to help local families who are in need.”

The Team Nolan Financial Assistance Program provides financial grants to families in Cayman, assisting them with expenses associated with urgent paediatric cardiology health care. Grants may be awarded in relation to everyday expenses such as utilities, food, and transportation costs.

Like all charities, the Cayman Heart Fund has been hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic. Team Nolan was forced to postpone its largest awareness and fundraising event, KIDSFEST, originally planned for June 27 2020. However, children with heart problems still need access to cardiovascular care, and the Team Nolan financial assistance program is designed to help these families in times of hardship. During the difficult COVID-19 lockdown periods, Team Nolan organized an online Zumbathon hosted by The School of Fitness allowing the public to join in and make donations online while enjoying a great, fun workout from the safety of their homes. The June 27th Zumba event raised over $2,500 KYD.

Brenda Bush, recipient of the grant said “I really appreciate the help of Team Nolan and the Cayman Heart Fund during these difficult times. I admire the work of Ailian and Sean of Team Nolan – having the strength to help others despite their own personal tragedy is inspirational.”

Cayman Heart Fund is a non-profit organization incorporated under the Companies Law (2007 Revision) in 2007, with Registration License # 220594. Our aim is to alert, reduce and help prevent Cardiovascular Disease (CVD) – Cayman’s #1 cause of death in the Cayman Islands. We achieve this through education, training and by providing medical equipment and services to the public.

Team Nolan is the Paediatric Program of the Cayman Heart Fund, 100 % committed to raising awareness about congenital heart defects (CHD). Team Nolan was established by Sean and Ailian Evans in memory of their son Nolan who passed away on January 25, 2018 from a complex CHD.
