1,000+ Voices Have Been Heard By The American Heart Association Demanding More for Those Fighting CHD

Because of YOUR support, conversations at a national level have started between the American Heart Association + Bright Heart Foundation for specific Congenital Heart Defects (CHD) initiatives including, but not limited to:
 
1) CHD Research Funding
2) CHD Support Groups
3) CHD Awareness
 
We look forward to continued conversations and progress with the American Heart Association on behalf of the entire Congenital Heart Defects community – from prenatal diagnosis through adulthood.  
 
Together, we can continue to make an impact on Congenital Heart Defects!

Bright Heart Foundation: Family Update

We know about the journey of a CHD Heart Warrior because we are on our own journey with our 3 year-old son, Luke, that ended us in the hospital 2 times during Bright Heart Month 2021. We recently found out that he will be going in for open heart surgery #3 in April 2021. In his honor, we share this video from 2019. Please enjoy and share LUKE’S STORY!
