Our Story

CHD Tablet Talk was created by Faith Brackett, a CHD Warrior, for CHD Warriors. Faith was born with a rare congenital heart defect known as HLHS. She has had a total of 8 major open-heart surgeries, including being the first child to undergo what is now known as the bi-ventricle repair.

Our Truth

According to the CDC, about 40,000 children are born each year in the US with a congenital heart defect. About 25% of those infants will have a critical CHD that will require surgery or other invasive procedures. Some conditions are extremely complex resulting in extensive hospital stays.

We won't let that stop us!

Our Reason

While the world has experienced the life of quarantine due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this is unfortunately not a new struggle for those who live with chronic and serious health conditions, and sadly, it does complicate it further. Children are often admitted to specialty hospitals that may be located hours or even several states away from home. Older children often have phones that allow them to stay in touch with friends and family, as well as play games on a handheld device, however, younger children most likely do not have these resources. They would benefit from the use of a tablet to stay connected, read, or play games from the confines of their bed. Visit "Our Referral Process" Page to see how to obtain a CHD Tablet Talk Package.

Our Drive

Faith is a fierce advocate for CHD as she volunteers as well as sits on the board of several CHD Organizations. She is no stranger to the challenges that a lengthy hospital stay can pose, which is one of the many reasons why she created CHD Tablet Talk. 

Our Hope

To easy the burden of a hospital stay for CHD children in need so that they may know:

they have a way to keep in touch,

they have an activity they can do,

they are remembered,

they are loved,

and that even when things are very hard, there is always a way to stay close with those back home
