We fund research.
We want to make sure babies don't have to undergo open heart surgeries, but it's currently the only option for 30% of children born with CHD. A Giving Heart Foundation is funding efforts by some of the world's best and most innovative pediatric specialists to help bring that percentage down to 0.
30% of babies born with CHD require open heart surgery, with long hospital stays and subsequent procedures preventing them from enjoying a full childhood. But with enough funding, a less-invasive option is less than two years away.
