Children’s Heart Foundation is committed to making a difference in the lives of heart families through emotional, educational and financial support to inspire a higher quality of life for all.
It’s important for all children to laugh and play, especially those born with lifelong medical conditions. We at Children’s Heart Foundation are committed to the well-being of these Nevada children.
Heart problems in children are surprisingly common. They are, in fact, the most common type of birth defect and the number one cause of death during the first year of life. Nearly twice as many children die from congenital heart disease in the United States each year as die from all forms of childhood cancers combined.
Children’s Heart Foundation was founded by a unique and passionate group of parents and Nevada pediatric cardiologists who have gained firsthand knowledge of the emotional and financial toll exacted by a child’s heart condition. All are eager to provide appropriate services for heart children and their families.
Our Four Main Goals
- to provide a carefree camp experience for children with heart conditions
- to educate healthcare professionals and the general public on pediatric cardiology issues
- to lend support to families as they deal with the emotional and financial toll exacted by a child’s heart condition
- to support research in the area of pediatric cardiology
