Helping Kids with
Congenital Heart Disease
One Heart at a Time
What is CHD?
Congenital Heart Disease (CHD) affects 1 IN EVERY 100 newborns, and it is the most common birth defect worldwide. More than 40,000 babies are born with CHD every year in the United States alone. There is no cure and no known cause for CHD. We do know it’s a life-long medical condition and that life-saving surgeries and the love of family is the special hope for these new hearts.
How We Support CHD Families
Identify transitional support groups, educational resources and medical advocacy assistance.
Connect caregivers to social activities and events in the community
Build Partnerships to grow awareness and increase support for children and their families.
Through our experience of living with a child with a Critical Congenital Heart Disease, we found that there are many gaps in services for this population. It is a difficult process to navigate especially when you are in the midst of a crisis. Families suddenly find themselves in a space where being able to process this new situation is extremely difficult. As they are sorting out their new life, learning all they can about their child’s condition. The need for resources to grow and/or the family does not know the questions to ask?
Founded in 2015, and incorporated as a 501(c)(3) Nonprofit since 2016.
We established Human Services for families and children impacted by Congenital Heart Disease, CHD.
All the proceeds go to :
The many CHD Awareness campaigns and events we host.
Life sustaining equipment that insurances do not cover.
Resources for family fun activities to medical professionals, that can support their unique need.
Research for Treatment Enhancements, there is no real cause so they is no cure. Therefore CHD KIDS have intervention or treatments through the innovation of science medicine.
CHD is underfunded and most organizations like Brave little Hearts are in place to help fund the research to filling in the uninsured gaps.
