Approximately 1 in 100 babies born in the United States each year will have a congenital heart defect (CHD) which makes it the most common birth defect. Little is known about what causes CHD’s and little is known on how to prevent them. Our families have a strong passion for supporting CHD research through money raised by Lasting Imprint. It is through this research that we will be able to better understand CHD’s and how to prevent and treat them.
Lasting Imprint is proud to work directly with The Children’s Heart Foundation to ensure that all donations made to research are put towards the most promising and effective studies being done in the United States. We invite you to learn more about this great organization!
It’s My Heart is a resource book for patients and families affected by congenital heart defects. In plain, understandable language It’s My Heart provides descriptions of the types of congenital heart defects and acquired pediatric heart conditions your child may face. Along with explanations of the various tests, surgical procedures, and treatments for CHD’s, this book also contains helpful diagrams, a glossary of medical terms, and much, much more. It’s My Heart was developed over a number of years by a dedicated group of doctors, nurses and parents in collaborative effort spearheaded by The Children’s Heart Foundation (Click on the icon to the left to download the It’s My Heart book.)
