February 7-14 is Congenital Heart Defect Awareness Week.
Every 15 minutes, a baby is born with a congenital heart defect. That’s 40,000 babies a year. CHDs are structural problems that hurt the heart and place an enormous strain on vulnerable families.
About 1.3 million Americans of all ages have some form of congenital heart defect. That’s why we’re here for babies, adults and all the stages in-between. Learn more at heart.org/CHD
