What We Do
Families and Individuals
We provide support, information and resources to families with children with congenital heart defects and adults with CHDs.  

Medical Community
We are committed to working with the medical community to share up-to-date and accurate information about congenital heart defects, as well as provide information and resources for their patients.  We have conducted research, worked with physicians to publish the outcomes, and written several articles to help physician communicate better with patients.
