With approximately 1 in 100 births affected each year, congenital heart defects are the most common type of birth defect in the United States.
Today, most children receive congenital heart defect treatment and live to adulthood. The frequency of heart defects is underappreciated, and there is even less understanding of the growing relevance and importance of adult survivors with congenital heart disease (CHD). Today, an estimated 2.5 million people are affected by CHD in the United States, with nearly 2 million being adults.
Every baby born with a heart defect should have the opportunity to thrive throughout their lifespan, not just to age 18. ACHA’s vision is that every adult with CHD receives specialized cardiac care and we are the only national non-profit organization dedicated solely to serving the growing number of adults with CHD and the specialty medical providers who care for them.
Support ACHA’s vision by donating cryptocurrency and make an important difference for the CHD community nationwide.
