There's still time to make an extra special Christmas gift to heart research

This Christmas, you can help children like Phi (pictured) avoid open-heart surgery before they even go to kindy.

Scientists at the Victor Chang Cardiac Research Institute discovered a molecule, called NAD could cause heart defects during pregnancy. Not only that but they discovered a potential treatment, a simple vitamin supplement, vitamin B3.

In order to progress this exciting discovery to clinical trials, and to test this new treatment, we urgently need to raise $800,000 in additional funding.

You can make your Christmas gift count this year, by supporting research to prevent children from being born with heart defects. You can help save a child's heart.
