Children's Heart Foundation
The Children’s Heart Foundation exists for one reason: to save, extend, and improve the lives of all congenital heart defect patients by funding the most promising research.
Our vision is a world in which everyone born with a congenital heart defect has the chance to live a long, healthy life, and that eventually, CHDs will be eradicated altogether.
With the help of our volunteers and supporters, we are making great progress. Research funded by The Children’s Heart Foundation is saving lives and has already improved survival rates, longevity, and quality of life for CHD patients in dramatic and life-changing ways. In the past two decades, death rates from congenital heart defects have dropped by 37.5 percent. As a result, the Foundation is now supporting research on the developmental, transitional, and lifelong care needs affecting the millions of Americans with CHDs who are living longer lives than ever before. The research we fund is saving lives and positively impacts all CHD patients.
