There is little understanding of how to prevent heart defects and unfortunately, no cure. Thanks to medical advances, patients with congenital heart defects are living longer, but there is still much work to be done. It is part of our mission to continually support the research necessary to find the best treatments and work towards a cure for CHD. There are over 2 million people in the U.S. living with congenital heart defects, yet research studies are often designed by the scientists themselves. Conquering CHD actively promotes the belief that the patient should be at the center of any research study from beginning to end. We represent the patient voice in research collaboratives and individual research projects. We are committed to research that matters.

This is research that matters to all of us, and it matters right now. What we build today will help for decades to come. The research we do today will be accessible to the entire congenital heart disease community.
