Imagine a world in which a parent doesn't have to be told their child needs heart surgery at just a few days old. Imagine a world where there are treatments and preventative measures for all congenital heart defects. We would like to imagine then realize a world in which heart disease is no longer the leading cause of death. To do that, we need you!
FOR MORE INFORMATION,
Because with dreamers like you, our mission to build longer, healthier lives can be a reality.
Every child deserves a chance to imagine what they will be when they grow up and turn that dream into a reality. This chance begins at birth. We want every child to have the opportunity to live a longer, healthier life…we have work to do.
Nearly 1 every in 100 children are born with a congenital heart defect. The American Heart Association funds more pediatric cardiac research than any organization outside the federal government. Yet, every year grants and fellowship applications go unfunded, which means many projects with potential scientific breakthroughs are shelved, and the knowledge that would result from them deferred. Many families can’t afford to wait another year for new medical advances to be made, which is why we need your support now.
Join us at the Houston Heart Ball and help us turn this dream into a reality as you Imagine with Heart.
To be a relentless force for a world of longer, healthier lives.
