About the Georgia Chapter
The Children’s Heart Foundation, Georgia Chapter, is composed of a committed group of volunteers who are dedicated to raising awareness of Congenital Heart Disease as well as raising money to support the national effort to fund the most promising research to help improve the lives of children and families affected. Please join us. We know this is important work and we can have fun while we achieve it together.
While our mission is directly tied to funding life-saving research, we also understand that families impacted by Congenital Heart Defects need both support and an outlet for their anxieties. We don’t have the infrastructure to provide emotional support directly to families, we can and will help you channel your energies in fundraising in honor of your child. We are very accessible and want you to be part of our mission to save lives and honor the lives of those lost to CHD. Contact Cherise Joy Gunnerson [email protected]
We invite you to explore our site and support our mission to save children’s lives, one heart at a time.
