Nearly 1 in 110 babies are born with congenital heart disease, making it the No. 1 birth defect in the country. And it’s a diagnosis that requires lifelong care.
The Congenital Heart Center (CHC) at University of Michigan Health C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital is one of the largest and most experienced pediatric heart programs in the U.S. It is also an international referral center for kids with complex congenital heart disease.
From February 1-28, 2023, C.S. Mott Children's Hospital is raising funds and awareness through its Save A Heart campaign. Donations made during this time will support areas with the most critical needs in the CHC.
The goal for the Save A Heart campaign is to raise $155,000 to fund important research, drive the development of new technologies and therapies, and provide social work and support programs to families.
Congenital Heart Defect Awareness Week occurs in February and promotes education and understanding of heart defects. Save A Heart overlaps with these national efforts and helps to rally public support to advance congenital heart care.
Please consider making a donation to our efforts to support the CHC’s goals of advancing research, inspiring clinical innovation, and providing assistance to families facing devastating heart conditions.
