Our Mission

CHDResources is committed to helping those with congenital heart defects reach their potential by providing important resource materials.    

We have created a set of FREE materials for physicians to distribute to patients, or for parents to download themselves.  All materials can be customized to include physician contact information and personalized for each patient.  To view the list of materials, see the Handouts/Forms page.

Our Materials

Our Free, Customizable Handouts and Forms can help physicians:
  Save time and avoid misunderstandings
  Quickly and easily give clear written instructions
  Increase patient understanding, retention and compliance

Our Resource Guide for CHD Patients includes:
  Support network information
  Questions to ask medical professionals
  Financial and insurance resources
  Getting help for developmental delays 
  Info on 504 plans and IEP’s for help with school issues

Why do we provide these materials for free?  
Because as parents of children with CHD, we truly believe that “Knowledge is Hope.”  These materials help parents understand the many issues associated with having a child with a complex congenital heart defect, give them a starting point in asking questions, and gives them confidence that they are not alone.  

CHDResources.org is a free service provided by  
California Heart Connection, a nonprofit, all-volunteer support network.
