About Heart of The Valley
Thursday Night- "Heart of the Valley"
We will be raising money, and helping bring attention to CHD (Congenital Heart Defect)
CHD is the most common birth defect around the world but often goes undetected and undiagnosed. CHD consists of problems with the heart's structure or the way it works at birth, including related lifelong consequences.
Here are some facts you might not know
1 in 100 newborns are born with CHD
25% of children born with CHD need heart surgery or other interventions to survive
There is no cure for CHD
Fewer than 10% of adults with CHD are receiving recommended care
#1 Cause of birth defect-related deaths
Costs for hospitalizations related to CHD were more than $6 Billion in 2013
CHDs are 50 times more common than childhood cancer
Thanks to Funding and Research, Over 85% of babies born with CHD now live to at least age 18
The funds we raise this year will help to purchase new comfortable rocking chairs for the Rocky Mountain Hospital for Children Pediatric Intensive Care Unit. For the hours upon hours that parents spend holding and rocking their precious babies.
