Why Research

Research Saves Lives.

Our vision is a world in which all babies born with congenital heart defects (CHDs) live long, healthy lives, and that eventually, CHDs will be eradicated altogether.

That's why we are dedicated to funding research to advance the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of CHDs.

We have been funding critical CHD research for more than 20 years. In that time, survival rates for babies born with CHDs and older CHD patients have improved remarkably thanks to medical advancements that have been made through research.

With the generous support of our donors, we are able to continue to fund research that makes these life-saving advancements possible and help more and more CHD patients live longer into adulthood.

Because of continued research into CHDs, scientists are:
