The Pediatric Congenital Heart Association’s (PCHA) mission is to “Conquer Congenital Heart Disease.” We are accomplishing this through collaboration with patients, parents, providers, and partner organizations to improve quality and outcomes through CHD education, support, research, and awareness. Our volunteer team has supported local heart families in Illinois since 2011, through comfort care bags/kits, bereavement boxes, support meetings, family fun events, and so much more. PCHA-IL is run 100% by volunteer leaders that are heart parents, patients, and family members.
