Please join us in supporting Jessie’s Heart. Congenital heart disease (CHD) is a leading cause of birth defect-associated infant illness and death. One out of every 100 babies born today has some form of congenital heart defect. The Jessie’s Heart Foundation contributes donations to the Children’s Hospital Foundation to serve the needs of the families whose children are hospitalized with heart disease. Besides providing financial support to CHD families, the Jessie’s Heart Foundation has developed programs to assist them in reducing emotional and physical stress through life planning and well being workshops.
