Children's Cardiomyopathy Foundation

The Children's Cardiomyopathy Foundation (CCF) is a national, non-profit organization focused on pediatric cardiomyopathy, a chronic disease of the heart muscle. CCF is dedicated to accelerating the search for cures while improving diagnosis, treatment, and quality of life for children affected by cardiomyopathy.

CCF actively works with federal agencies, medical societies, voluntary health organizations, and hospitals nationwide to increase awareness, accelerate research, and advance education on pediatric cardiomyopathy.

The hope is that one day every affected child can be cured to live a full and active life.

“A Cause for Today… A Cure for Tomorrow”

CCF News & Updates

Join us this September to raise awareness of pediatric cardiomyopathy, the number one cause of sudden cardiac arrest and heart transplants in children. In every state, city and neighborhood there is most likely a child with cardiomyopathy — one diagnosed today and one to be diagnosed tomorrow. You can help us get the word out that heart disease isn't just about adults; it affects kids, too.

Join CCF this September to help raise awareness of pediatric cardiomyopathy, the leading cause of sudden cardiac arrest in the young. Talk with your family to #KnowYourHeart and learn the signs, symptoms and risk factors of cardiomyopathy.

During Children’s Cardiomyopathy Awareness Month there are 30 days of fun educational activities to learn, share and take action.
