HeartKids is the only national not-for-profit organisation who is solely focused on supporting and advocating for all people impacted by childhood onset heart disease, one of the largest causes of infant death in Australia. Our purpose is to help every child, teenager, and adult in Australia with CHD have a fighting chance to live a long, healthy, and fulfilling life.
Our support is a commitment for life because there is no known cure. People with congenital heart disease face unique challenges for their entire life.
