Since its establishment, CCF has grown into a community of families, physicians, scientists and pediatric professionals focused on improving diagnosis, treatment and quality of life for children with cardiomyopathy.


Over the years, CCF has partnered with top medical centers and organizations such as the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute, National Organization for Rare Diseases, National Society of Genetic Counselors, and the American Heart Association (AHA), to fill the voids in research and education. More information about CCF can be found at www.childrenscardiomyopathy.org
