Welcome to PCHA – Illinois

The Pediatric Congenital Heart Association’s mission is to “Conquer Congenital Heart Disease.” We are accomplishing this through collaboration with patients, parents, providers, and partner organizations to improve quality and outcomes through CHD education, support, research and awareness.

For more information about congenital heart disease, please visit our home page.

Congenital Heart Network

The Congenital Heart Network is a program of PCHA, aimed at improving the lives of those with congenital heart disease and their families through direct support and education – meeting families where they are.  Through local activities like peer-to-peer support, care package distribution and educational materials, we are working directly with patients, families and medical professionals impacting one life at a time.

Hearing the news “there’s something wrong with baby’s heart” can be devastating. Even with successful intervention, CHD requires ongoing and sometimes intensive, medical care. Your donation helps in so many ways.  It is more than our ability to hold the hand of the parent who fears for the life of their child with a reassuring “I’ve been there.” It’s providing the knowledge and hope they need to make important decisions for their child.  It’s helping families navigate childhood and, perhaps more importantly, all the changes that come with transitioning to independent adults.  It’s about empowering the adults with congenital heart disease who are facing new, unexpected challenges as they are pioneering the way as survivors.

By clicking the button below – you will make a contribution to the Congenital Heart Network Fund.  As a program of the Pediatric Congenital Heart Association, this fund provides you with the opportunity to direct your money back to the state chapter, or support the network, nationally.

Please give generously.
