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.
Our son, Benjamin, was born with Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome. This means the left side of his heart is severely underdeveloped. This causes low oxygen levels, low energy, and cyanosis. Benjamin had his first open heart surgery at 6 days old and spent 2 months recovering in the hospital. At 6 months old, he had his second open heart surgery, this time only spending a week in the hospital. He will have a third open heart surgery in the next few years. Ryan and I are so proud of Benjamin's strength and courage. He has been fighting for his life from day one. He is not only our Heart Warrior, but also our personal Superhero!
There is currently no cure for Congenital Heart Defects, but with funding and research, we hope and pray that one day there will be!
Please help us to fund CHD research by making a donation to my personal fundraising page. Together we can make a life-saving difference!
