Every day 8 children are born with a heart defect, that is a family every 3 hours whose life will change in a heartbeat.
Four lives are tragically lost each week. CHD is the leading cause of death in Australian babies under the age of one. It’s a lifelong condition and there’s no known cure.
This June, help us raise awareness for the real heroes, the children and families who are impacted by congenital or childhood acquired heart disease.
HeartKids Australia continues to rely on financial support from corporates and the wider public to deliver services including in-hospital and family support programs, camps for children and young people living with CHD, as well as vital education days and peer support programs to help families cope with the significant impact of the disease.
Simply get your workplace involved, sign up and let people know what you are doing (do a sneak peak video of what you will be wearing). On the day share on social media #beaheroforheartkids #CHDawareness #hero4heartkids
Be a hero
