Welcome to the Congenital Heart Defects Coalition of Greater Philadelphia!
Congenital Heart Defect Coalition is a nonprofit organization whose sole purpose is to improve the quality of life for all affected by congenital heart defects (CHDs). We will successfully achieve our mission by uniting and supporting the CHD community, funding research, and raising public awareness.
The Greater Philadelphia Group was started in memory of Zachary Shafer who was born with HLHS in February of 2008. Zachary passed away in December of 2008, 17 days shy of his first Christmas.
Currently, we are attending support Groups at St. Christopher’s Childrens Hospital in Philadelphia. We are always open to adding on support groups to fit the needs of our families. Contact us for further information.
