The Western Canadian Children’s Heart Network (WCCHN) is hosting the second Western Canadian Virtual Fontan Heart Camp on Saturday, February 26, 2022.

WCCHN looks forward to connecting children with Fontan to others similar to them through fun activities such as games and crafts and answering any questions you may have about your heart. Registered participants will receive the Zoom link for the event closer to the date.

Registration is now open!
