This website is dedicated to raising awareness of Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome (HLHS), a serious congenital heart defect that affects approximately 1 in every 5,000 babies born, and to providing support for those affected by it.  Browse the categories at the left to learn more about HLHS and to meet some of these special kids and their families.  Be sure to sign the guestbook before you go! Try our new forum to post questions or share experiences.
