Congenital Heart Defect Awareness Week
These days you see hearts all over the place, in cards and store windows promoting Valentine’s Day. But when you see those hearts, please remember that this is also Congenital Heart Defect Awareness week.
We all have a heart and chances are we don’t give it much thought because it does its job day in and day out, but each year 40,000 babies are born in the US with a congenital heart defect. And the defect is getting some much needed awareness this week.
