A DAY FOR HEARTS
Fri, 02-03-2006 - 4:48pm
A DAY FOR HEARTS gives our vibrant networked online community the chance to take on a humane cause: Promoting Awareness of Congenital Heart Defects.

Congenital Heart Defects (CHD) are a lethal constellation of birth defects of the heart that affect millions of newborn infants and children worldwide; a killer that claims thousands of lives every year. Eight of every 1000 children born alive (0.8%) will have some form of congenital heart defect.

On this special day, February 14th, A DAY FOR HEARTS, a concerted global effort is being made to heighten awareness of this deadly group of diseases. We at Heart Disease Online support this event by offering information, resources and support to those whose lives have been touched by Congenital Heart Defects.
