Harboring Hearts is partnering with the Children’s Cardiomyopathy Foundation (CCF) to promote Children’s Cardiomyopathy Awareness Month this September. The awareness month calls attention to the signs, symptoms, and risk factors for cardiomyopathy and sudden cardiac arrest.
Cardiomyopathy affects how the heart muscle pumps blood through the body, and it is a leading cause of sudden cardiac deaths and heart transplants in children.
Throughout the month, Harboring Hearts will be posting facts and information on Children’s Cardiomyopathy. Children’s Cardiomyopathy Awareness Month encourages parents, physicians, nurses, coaches, teachers, and community leaders to be aware of the signs and symptoms of cardiomyopathy to better identify at-risk children and direct them to the appropriate medical care. Increased attention in this area can help to prevent sudden death.
Follow our social media during this month to learn more about Children’s Cardiomyopathy.
