Chicagoland Cardiac Connections is Chicagoland's first community for children and
young adults with pacemakers and implantable cardioverter-defibrillators (ICDs).
Our mission is to help connect young patients to others like them.
CCC was founded by the patients, nurses and cardiologists at Ann & Robert H. Lurie
Children's Hospital of Chicago. Our group is led by Dr. Gregory Webster and
a steering committee of families and patients with pacemakers and ICDs.
|Our all-volunteer organization conducts the annual event
to bring patients, parents, friends, families and providers face-to-face.
In 2017 we will be holding our Heart-to-Heart day on September 24th.
We want to let everyone know that they are not alone.
All time and materials are donated or are supported by
tax-deductible donations and fundraising events.
CCC is open to patients of any age who have a pacemaker
or ICD. We welcome family members and friends. If you might
receive a pacemaker or ICD someday, come join us!
