SAN DIEGO, Jan. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- The Hispanic Chamber of E-Commerce recently announced its commitment to the Children's Heart Foundation and its mission to bring health, hope and happiness to children and families impacted by congenital heart defects.

"Most people are unaware that Congenital Heart Defects (CHDs) are the most common birth defect in America, affecting approximately one in one hundred, or 40,000 newborns each year. My baby was born with a CHD. 'Touch a Child's Heart' fundraising campaign is a personal commitment, for me and everyone at the HISCEC, to support the CHF's mission and its valuable contributions to society," Tayde Aburto, HISCEC's CEO, said.

The HISCEC will donate a portion of the proceeds from the organization's 2010 Business and Technology Expo to the CHF.  The event will be held at the San Diego Convention Center on September 10th & 11th, 2010.  Monies donated to the Children's Heart Foundation help fund research to advance the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of the number one birth defect in the United States.

"The Children's Heart Foundation is proud to partner with the Hispanic Chamber of E-Commerce in creating renewed hope through the funding of research for children born with congenital heart defects and their families. Through the contributions made as a result of this partnership, critically needed research will be funded, answers to long standing questions will be developed and children's lives will ultimately be saved. We sincerely thank the HISCEC for their commitment with CHF in 'Saving Children's Lives - One Heart at a Time,' " William Foley, Children's Heart Foundation Executive Director, said.

The HISCEC recognizes the value the Children's Heart Foundation offers those they serve and has vowed its continued assistance after The Expo.
