On February 14th, 2004, families and professionals across the country will join together to celebrate Congenital Heart Defect Awareness Day. This day is set aside each year to honor families of children and adults with congenital heart defects and disease (CHDs) and the professionals who work with them, and to cherish the memory of lives lost.
Currently, the issuance of proclamations for Congenital Heart Defect Awareness Day is limited to local and state governments. While the participation of these officials is greatly appreciated, a Presidential Proclamation would make an unprecedented impact on raising awareness about CHDs.
Raising national awareness about Congenital Heart Defects is important on many levels
