Charities Recognized for CHD Efforts

This past month, two outstanding CHD-related charities were selected by IntelliClear as its 2008 Clarity Trust recipients. Congratulations to Its My Heart and HeartGift Foundation!

As the Congenital Heart Futures Act is being introduced to both houses of the United States Congress this spring, IntelliClear recognizes this year the outstanding efforts of It's My Heart and HeartGift as leading the charge on children's CHD.

"According to the American Association of Thoracic Surgery, an astonishing 93% of the world's population has no access to cardiac surgery. With the assistance of generous corporate citizens like IntelliClear -- by combining our resources, our skills and our compassion -- HeartGift's all volunteer team of pediatric physicians will continue to save the lives of children born with CHD," says Lisa Rodman, Executive Director of The
HeartGift Foundation.

"Since CHD is America's #1 birth defect, it is vital that we bring awareness to the nation via community outreach, hospital programs and other support services that bring families and resources together. It's My Heart, Inc. relies heavily on the compassion of corporations like IntelliClear Inc., allowing us to further our advocacy and awareness programs for those affected by CHD," says Corrie Stassen, Executive Director of It's My Heart, Inc.
