Help raise awareness for Congenital Heart Defects/Disease.(HEARTKIDS) sign now

To the Honorable President and Members of the Senate in Parliament

1 in 100 babies are born with congenital heart disease. Parents with these children are not acknowledged by centrelink even though they spend hundreds, if not thousands of dollars on doctors, pediatricians, hospitals, cardiologists and medications each year. They also have to take a lot of time off work. This can go on for a lot of years for most of us.

Your petitioners ask that the Senate approve legislation to acknowledge congenital heart disease (heartkids) in Centrelink forms for carers allowance

1 in 100 children are born with a Congenital Heart Defect (CHD)

Every 3 & ½ hours a child is born with a serious heart defect

6 babies a day are born with CHD (2015 Babies a year)

It is the no.1 reason for child death (accounting for 35% of all deaths)

It is the no. 1 birth abnormality in Australia

It can never be completely ’cured’.

Bacterial endocarditis, a life-threatening & sometimes fatal condition can strike our HeartKids.

Heart defects range from a hole in the heart to a complex combination of conditions.

Sadly some defects cannot be repaired

Please help raise awareness for Congenital Heart Defects/Disease.
