Congenital Heart Defects Wristbands

Raise Awareness of Congenital Heart Defects with Custom Bracelets

With more than 35,000 babies born each year with congenital heart defects, many families across the nation are forced to deal with this potentially life threatening condition. Congenital heart defects are present at birth and change the normal flow of blood through the heart. Congenital heart defects are the most common type of birth defect, affecting 8 out of every 1,000 newborns. January is National Birth Defects Awareness Month, and many events are planned to raise awareness. Custom congenital heart defects wristbands can help this important cause.
