Every day, there are over 100 babies born with a heart defect in the U.S. That’s thousands of hearts each year. Add those to the 100’s and 100’s and 100’s who are already living with heart defects. That’s millions of hearts.
But let’s bring into focus just one heart. That one baby who, by all odds, was that 1 in 110. That one born with the heart defect. It could be your daughter, your son, your niece or your nephew. It could be your Mom, your brother, your neighbor, your classmate, or even you. Who do you know that has a story about heart defects?
The Pediatric Congenital Heart Association is committed to bringing these stories together, amplifying them to make a difference.
Uniting a community is a big task, however. We can’t do it without your help. PCHA is primarily funded by individual donors, like you. In order to be successful, we need to unite a community of partners and supporters.
By making a simple donation of $20 or more to our 100’s of Hearts Campaign, you are helping to empower the 100’s, thousands perhaps millions.
