Mécénat Chirurgie Cardiaque

Mécénat Chirurgie Cardiaque enables children born with heart defects to be operated in France when it’s impossible in their home country for technical or financial reasons.


Mécénat Chirurgie Cardiaque (MCC) was created in 1996 by Pr. Francine Leca, first female cardiac surgeon in France. For her, the Mécénat means giving children a life when nature had decided otherwise.

- Nearly 3’300 children have been looked after since the creation of the organization. 
- 9 French hospitals located all over France take part in this project. 
- 300 host families participate to take care of the children during their stay.

Mécénat Chirurgie Cardiaque and our Ambassadors have decided to set up the first TWISPER charity project. All together, we can help the world to be a better place for children.
