Heart Defect Resources
You are here
Congenital Heart Defects are the most common birth defect affecting 1 in 100 births. 22q11.2 Deletion Syndrome is found within 1 in 68 of those born with a heart defect. 75% of our population does have a heart defect of some kind. Here are some helpful resources for families with children who are affected with a heart defect.
These recommendations come from our community at large and from families of children in hopes this process can be easier for you with the right resources and supplies on hand. If you know of a resource that's not on our list that you would like to see added, please email: Lindsey@22qfamilyfoundation.org.
