CHD Awareness Week

February 7 - 14

When you donate to Krueger Hat Trick Foundation, you aren't just donating money.  You are providing hope to a Heart Family.


I'm sure you know February is American Heart Month, but there is one month where our little Heart Warriors can shine!  February 7th-14th is CHD Awareness Week and is the perfect time for us to spread awareness and help as many as possible.


Every 15 minutes a newborn enters this world with a CHD.  And still the understanding of why CHDs occur is widely unknown.  Currently CHDs are presumed to be genetic, but only a few genes have been discovered that have been linked to heart defects.  

Heart Warriors will forever be "Heart Patients" and with that comes a large social and financial impact.  Successful treatment requires highly specialized care.  Treatment for severe congenital heart defects requires extensive financial resources, including the costs associated with hospitalization.  Children with developmental delays also require community - and school-based resources to achieve their full potential. 

Being a Heart Family is difficult.  Having a child with a CHD can put an enormous emotional and financial strain on a family.  We hope you open your heart this Heart Month and help us provide hope to Heart Families.
