Supported conference for families to hear the latest research from doctors and nurses in the field in conjunction with the Fetal Heart Symposium.
Sponsorship of the symposium allows PCH to bring the top researchers and fetal cardiologists around the world to Phoenix to share the latest advancements in fetal cardiology diagnosis and interventions.

The Heart for the Home program provides 3D models of patients to their families at no cost to the family.
What do these hearts mean to patient families?
As one mom shared, "This means everything to me, as it is a symbol of his strength, his struggles, his victories, and ultimately of losing him. Receiving the gift of his 3D sculpture has brought him back to us—his father and I, and his little brother. He is home."
Provided every CHAMPION (Cardiac High Acuity Monitoring Program for Infants & Newborns) graduate a children’s book to help foster development at this year’s graduation ceremony.
Last year, 21 local babies born missing half of their heart underwent at least two open heart surgeries before six months of age and were able to “graduate” out of high-risk ICU monitoring.
These babies are at increased risk for developmental delay and studies show that reading out loud can help make a difference.
