California Heart Connection
A support and information network for those with congenital heart defects

There are no scheduled events.

Please note that California Heart Connection no longer holds annual picnics.  These in-person get togethers were a vital source of information and support for families when the internet and social media were in their infancy.  Fortunately, families today have more opportunities to connect via online avenues.
