About the Shirley Fund
A routine heart health assessment not only saved Shirley Allenbrand’s life, it profoundly changed it. The Olathe businesswoman and Kansas leader has since become a passionate advocate for women’s heart health – so much so that we’ve named The Shirley Fund in her honor. Read Shirley’s inspiring story.
Shirley Allenbrand had A Change of Heart®, and you can, too! Help women throughout the region live heart-healthier lives with a gift to The Shirley Fund, benefiting The University of Kansas Hospital’s women’s heart health program.
