Join in the fight against childhood heart disease by joining forces with your colleagues, family, and friends on the 18th June.
We support all those impacted by congenital or childhood acquired heart disease from diagnosis through to adulthood. There is no known cure and your support can help them live the best life possible.
If you are preparing for heart surgery for yourself or your heart kid there are undeniable fears of the unknown. Elle, one of our heart adults shares her tips on preparing for open-heart surgery.
Every 3 hours, a child is born with congenital heart disease; the reality is that it can happen to anyone's child. Sadly, every week, four precious lives are lost due to the disease. There is no known cure for CHD.
Finding out that your child or unborn baby has a heart condition can be overwhelming. HeartKids provides support for parents and carers in many different ways.
HeartKids has a dedicated space for young people (13-24 years) who have childhood heart disease to keep informed, manage their transition and support each other.
Adults with childhood heart disease have unique needs and challenges. HeartKids understands that this is a lifetime journey and we are here to support you throughout.
Heart Angels are children or young people that die from congenital heart disease or associated conditions. We provide support and assistance to Heart Angel families.
The HeartKids Helpline is available Monday to Friday.

Message from the CEO for HeartKids' community
My name is Janelle and when I was one day old, I was diagnosed with Congenital Heart Disease. In December, my sister Darian & I will be challenging ourselves to trek 240km along the 'Great North Walk' from Sydney to Newcastle to raise money for HeartKids.
HeartKids are very proud to be collaborating with the Heart Research Institute to better improve the future outcomes of all those living with childhood-onset heart disease.
