Big Hearts helping Little Hearts
In Support of SickKids Foundation


Cardiac Kids is a volunteer group established in 2000 to raise funds for children who are suffering from congenital heart disease. One in 100 Canadian children are born with a congenital heard defect (CHD) and more than half need surgery to survive. More than half of the patients who require surgery are under one year old, and almost a quarter are less than a month old. Congenital Heart Defects are the most common birth defect.


Funds raised by Cardiac Kids are used to support the children and staff of the cardiology ward at The Hospital for Sick Children through two main areas of focus:

Emotional health and well being of children and families affected by CHD

Through research doctors have developed many tools and techniques to help children with CHD to survive and liver longer lives. Cardiac Kids recognizes that care doesn't end once the child leaves the hospital and that families affected by CHD face many challenges. We remain committed to supporting children and families by providing fun and social opportunities, connecting families experiencing similar challenges, and funding educational events for parents.

Pediatric cardiology nursing

Cardiac Kids is a strong supporter of pediatric cardiology nursing education, with the aim of providing the best possible care for children who must undergo cardiac treatment. To that end, each year scholarships and conference funding are provided to Cardiac Program nurses to maintain their position at the leading edge of pediatric cardiology nursing.
