Olivia Elizalde - Heart Warrior (COA, ASD, BICUSPID VALVE)
Heart Mama to my Heart Warrior, Olivia Alexandra
Hello and thank you for visiting my fundraising page for the Congenital Heart Walk of DETROIT!
My name is Marianne Elizalde, I'm a proud Heart Mom to my daughter, Olivia. Olivia was born with three congenital heart defects and required surgery shortly after she was born to give her the best outcome of survival.
Raising funds for CHD research is critically important to all Heart Warriors, Heart Warriors, and Heart Families! Currently I have volunteered with Make-A-Wish for years and had experience with families of heart warriors and to then become a mother of a child who needed surgery at 4 days old was hands down the most difficult thing I have ever been through.
I am entirely grateful for the medical community supporting research to find a cure for CHD's and I'm not sure where my family would be if it hadn't been for the research done so far. Her medical team and supporters have been instrumental in our ability to learn more about how we can not only help Olivia be a strong and healthy child, but also how we can help make a difference in the Heart Community.
I am dedicated to try and provide more support to expand the research and resources we have for the CHD community. I've been apart of the Council for the Michigan Chapter - CHF Board as an Advocacy Lead and hope to help make an impact on this community and help give back to the group that's given my daughter and I so much!
Please help us to fund CHD research by making a donation to my PERSONAL or TEAM fundraising page and we can all make a LIFE SAVING difference!
