Bright Heart Foundation

Mission Statement

Grounded in love, with a primary mission of hope, Bright Heart Foundation advocates for and supports children and their families living with the challenges of Congenital Heart Defects (CHD), while also providing support for the physicians who treat them.

CHD currently affects about 40,000 newborns in the United States each year. Of those births, 25% have a critical CHD, which generally requires surgery or other procedures in their first year of life. CHD is a lifelong battle for many children as there currently is no cure.

Through HOPE we help heal hearts!
