Welcome to the CHD Coalition, a volunteer-based nonprofit organization devoted to improving the quality of life for children and adults affected by congenital heart defect (CHD)—the #1 birth defect worldwide and leading cause of infant deaths in the United States.
You are not alone. Supporting the CHD community and hospitals delivers an immediate benefit to the families and children affected. Together, we can share our experiences with CHD and form an invaluable connection built on hope.
The more people know, the bigger our impact. By raising national public awareness about the severity of CHD, families will be better educated to make informed decisions and society will recognize the need to advance critical research.
Innovative research and emerging technologies offer an enormous impact on the survival and potential outcomes of CHD. Research leads to the creation of new medical procedures, diagnoses, prevention methods, and treatments. Ultimately, CHD research saves lives.
Help us make a difference
We lead fundraisers, connect with hospitals, and spread the message of hope—but we can’t do it without the generous support of people like you. By donating or volunteering, you can change the lives of families and children across the globe.
