Racin' for Greyson
Our team, Racin’ for Greyson, is raising critical funds for congenital heart defects in honor of Amanda and Steve’s son, Greyson.
Greyson was born with a heart defect called Tetralogy of Fallot. It was undiagnosed during pregnancy and a complete shock to Amanda and Steve. At just three months old, Greyson underwent open heart surgery to repair his heart. Subsequent surgeries will be necessary and only time will tell how long it will be until his next.
Congenital heart defects are the most commonly occurring birth defect, affecting approximately 1 in 110 babies born, or a child born every 15 minutes. Congenital heart defects are the leading cause of birth-defect related mortality.
Funded research is making a very big difference in the lives of CHD patients, helping to reduce incidences and increase survival, longevity and quality of life. Research has made a very big impact, and with survival and longevity increasing, even more research is needed to help address lifelong challenges that CHD patients will face. Every dollar in support of The Children’s Heart Foundation helps to further their mission: to fund the most promising research to advance the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of congenital heart defects.
