Every Heart Has a Story: Help Write a Child’s Next Chapter

When parents hear their unborn child’s heartbeat for the first time, it’s magical.

But what if that tiny heart doesn’t sound right? That’s the reality for many parents. One of every 120 children is born with congenital heart disease. Others are diagnosed with a heart condition during childhood, and some acquire heart disease as they grow. All told, there are millions of children living with some type of heart condition.

Funds raised from the 2016 “All In” for Kids Poker Tournament will be used to support patient care, treatment and research at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia that benefits children with heart conditions in your community and around the world.

Thanks to the enormous advances made at CHOP’s Cardiac Center, children are not only surviving these potentially deadly conditions — they are thriving.

Our experienced cardiac team has revolutionized the way children with heart conditions are cared for, diagnosing and, in some cases, even treating children before birth, and actively following them well into adulthood.

Thank you for participating in this one-of-a-kind event.
