Congenital Heart Defect Awareness Week

This week was Congenital Heart Defect Awareness Week, so we brought you info each day.

Heart Defects are the most common birth defect.
Nearly 1 in 100 babies are born with CHD.
Estimates suggest there are more than 3 million people living with congenital heart disease (CHD).
Heart defects are costly - Hospital costs for children with CHD exceeded $5.6 billion in 2009.
Approximately 25% of children born with CHD will need life-saving intervention as infants.
There is no cure for CHD. Congenital Heart Disease requires life-long specialized care.
