The Children’s Heart Network is a provincial nonprofit organization that offers support, information, and education to children, youth, and families who are living with heart disease in British Columbia. If your child or someone you love has been diagnosed with heart disease, we are here to help.
There have been amazing medical advances to help children with congenital heart disease survive and live long and productive lives, but the care and worry doesn’t end once a child leaves the hospital. CHD affects the entire family, and so we support and connect families. We understand that children and families affected by CHD may face many challenges and we believe that other families are one of the best sources of support.
The Children’s Heart Network was formed in 1992 by families so that no family would have to embark on the journey alone. We support children and families through a parent resource program and by providing fun social opportunities so that families can connect and support one another. We also organize summer camps, coffee groups, workshops and conferences, and provide news and information through our newsletter and website. With the Children’s Heart Network, children and their families connect to find strength and understanding from those who face similar challenges.
