Let's end congenital heart disease in our lifetime.

The Project Heart Mission

Project Heart is a nonprofit organization that exists to fund the research needed to find lasting cures for all types of Congenital Heart Disease.

What is CHD?

A Congenital Heart Defect (or Congenital Heart Disease) is a life-long condition in which an abnormality of the heart is present at birth. If the child survives, they can be physically limited throughout their life and may experience premature death due to heart failure. CHD kills twice as many children as all forms of pediatric cancer combined, but only receives 1/5th of the funding.

Research Is Needed

More research is needed to better understand the causes of CHD, how to effectively treat it, and give individuals with CHD the hope for a long and healthy life.

Varieties of CHD

There are at least 17 main forms of CHD, each with multiple variations depending on the unique anatomy of each individual.
