Join CCF and families across the country as we host Bake for a Cure bake sales to increase awareness of cardiomyopathy and raise funds for research.

Raising Awareness Together

February is National Heart Month and the time to raise awareness of heart disease and its impact. Heart disease can occur at any age, and children are especially vulnerable when they are affected. Team CCF is shining a spotlight on pediatric cardiomyopathy and urging everyone to learn more, get involved, and take action.
