A special week to recognize people born with heart defects, to remember loved ones who lost their battle to CHD, and to honor the dedicated health professionals who work with us.

More than 40,000 babies are born each year in the United States w/ a Congenital Heart Defect.

Congenital Heart Disease is considered to be the most common birth defect, and is a leading cause of birth-defect related deaths worldwide.

Despite the fact that CHD affects millions of families, a relatively small amount of funding is currently available for parent/patient educational services, research, and support.


Two little guys that we know, are in the hospital now.

Lincoln Carter ~ he's been in hospital going on 8 months, his entire life ... waiting for a heart transplant at UCLA. Josh & Kristin are away from their home.
