This support is vital to the center's ability to continue providing high-quality care for adult patients with congenital heart disease. The term congenital heart disease applies to heart defects that are present at birth, of which 1 in 120 babies are born with. Estimates suggest that there are one million adults living with CHD, a number that is expected to rise by 5% every year. The United States has a severe shortage of cardiac centers fully prepared to care for adults living with CHD. Your tax-deductible contributions help to ensure that the ACHDC remains a leader in clinical care, research, education and training.
