CHD Awareness Week Proclaimed in Florida

It's Congenital Heart Defect Awareness Week. Each year from Feb. 7-14, the congenital heart community pushes extra hard to raise awareness of congenital heart defects. All over Florida, our heart moms and heart dads, heart kids and heart grown-ups, tell their stories of diagnosis, surgery and treatment, and of courage and strength. We've created a fact sheet for you, if you want more information about congenital heart defects.

So many people will stay to us, "I don't know how you've managed; I don't know if I could do it." And our answer often is, "You manage. You find a way. You have to." 

To all of our heart heroes and our heart angels, to all of our heart parents, siblings, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, friends and admirers ... to all of our physicians, our nurses, our social workers, our therapists, our caregivers ... 


Florida Gov. Rick Scott officially proclaimed Feb. 7-14 as
Congenital Heart Defect Awareness Week.
