Give Knowledge, Give a Voice, Give Hope

The Conquering CHD - IL chapter is a program of Conquering CHD, aimed at improving the lives of those with congenital heart disease and their families through direct support and education – meeting families where they are.

Through our State Chapters we are able to give knowledge, give a voice and give hope, directly meeting the comprehensive, lifelong needs of patients with congenital heart disease and their families through support, education, advocacy and research programming.

Local activities include:

-Conquering CHD Kits offering critical information and a personal connection for patients with CHD of all ages through individualized care packages 

-Online chat networks bringing people with similar experiences together 

-In-person peer support offering patients and families encouragement and insight from someone who has walked a similar path 

-Social events providing a safe environment to celebrate life and simple joys together 

-Physician education improving understanding of congenital heart disease from the patient and family perspective 

-Research promotion and participation helping promising developments become reality 

-Advocacy activities sharing our stories to improve federal research funding.
