The Brave Heart Fund was established in November 2003 by a family whose child was born with congenital heart disease (CHD). Their initiative has inspired volunteers around the world to raise money for the Brave Heart Fund—money that is used to assist financially needy families whose children suffer from CHD. Thanks to their efforts, dozens of children each year receive the treatment they need at the Children's Heart Center at the AUB Medical Center. Brave Heart Fund volunteers also work to promote public awareness of this devastating disease that kills nearly twice as many children each year as do all forms of childhood cancers combined.
The Brave Heart Fund is affiliated with the AUBMC Children's Heart Center; Dr. Fadi Bitar, Founding Director.
The Office of Development liaison is Walid Katergi, Associate Vice President for Development.
