We provide Cause Capes for Congenital Heart Defect Awareness
Congenital Heart Defects, commonly referred to as CHD, is the term used to reference a baby born with an abnormally formed heart. These little superheroes are in great need of a cape! There are various forms of CHD and the effects of the disease can be tragic for the families. Babies born with certain types of CHD need to go immediately into surgery and may need many follow up surgerys for years to come. While others may be affected so minimally it’s barely noticeable.
There are tests that can be performed to detect CHD before the baby is born, often it’s detected during the initial health screenings for the newborn.
Congenital Heart Defects is the most common birth defect. Nearly one in 100 babies are born with a CHD.
Thousands of babies born every year with CHD won’t live to see their first birthday, and many more won’t live to be an adult, and of those that make it to adulthood, many will need lifelong treatment.
CHD causes more deaths than any other cause in the USA.
The majority of babies born with CHD require at least one invasive surgery.
One key to helping to save these babies is early detection.
Superfly Kids has manufactured superhero capes for CHD causes and have shipped capes to CHD children in all 50 states in the United States plus over 40 countries outside the U.S.
