Welcome to My Personal Page
Thank you for visiting my fundraising page for the Congenital Heart Walk. Raising funds for CHD research is critically important to all Heart Warriors and Heart Angels, and personally very meaningful to me.
Being a part of the Congenital Heart Walk last year was such an inspiration to all of us. Watching our little heart warrior, Marissa walk most of those 3 miles with us was something to see. With a smile on her face, a twinkle in her eyes, and only laughter to be heard, she never once complained. She and the many other children and young adults there were such an inspiration to all. No one can begin to understand the emotions, the fear, and the anxiety that not only the children but their families as well experience when told your daughter, granddaughter has a congenital heart defect, specifically AVSD. Seeing my granddaughter attached to so many wires, IV lines, and tubes was horrible! Feeling so helpless was horrible! While she was only in the PICU for 4 days and did wonderful, they were 4 very long, anxious days. Every beep, every alarm that sounded gave way to more anxiety and fear. Those beeps and alarms we still hear in our sleep. So when you see that sweet little girl with all her curls, remember your donation towards the CHD research helped Marissa too.
One cannot imagine just how many children are or have been affected by CHD until you are part of such a special event such as this.
Please help us to fund CHD research by making a donation to my personal fundraising page. Together we can make a life-saving difference!
