Baking a Difference Together

Bake for a Cure is a nationwide initiative created to raise research funds and increase awareness of pediatric cardiomyopathy during National Heart Month and Children’s Cardiomyopathy Awareness Month. Families across the country are getting creative in hosting virtual and in-person Bake for a Cure events. Together, we can bake a difference for children with cardiomyopathy.
