February is heart month, a time to highlight the importance of taking care of your heart and supporting the ones you love. While heart conditions can be seen as issues that affect older people, CHEO treats the smallest hearts that need the utmost care. Each year in Canada, about 1 in every 100 babies is born with a congenital heart defect. Healthcare staff at CHEO diagnose, treat and monitor patients, keeping their young hearts strong. As these patients grow, their care will have to adapt. Some patients will need additional surgeries, some will require revised medication and fitness plans, all will need the help of the team at CHEO and community support.
Your donation will give doctors, nurses and staff the tools they need to deliver the very best care to the patients that need it the most. Learn more about the patients your dollars will directly impact.
