Welcome to Team Preston's 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.
As some of you may know, Preston was born with a Congenital Heart Defect called Tetralogy of Fallot. It is very difficult to detect before a baby is born so we had quite the surprise as I was recovering from my c-section, when the doctor called a "baby blue" and the hospital room flooded with doctors. Our life changed forever in that moment. The cardiologist was quick to diagnose and gave us the unfortunate news that Preston was going to need surgery in the very near future or else his oxygen levels would continue to decline. Little did we know, that moment was going to occur at the beginning of a nationwide shutdown and the beginnings of a global pandemic.
Sending my 9 week old child into open heart surgery was the hardest day of my life. Period. And I am forever grateful that the surgeons has the knowledge and expertise to bring my baby back safely to me. He is alive today because of past efforts and now it is my family's turn to pay it forward.
Please consider donating to The Children's Heart Foundation. No child should die of a broken heart.
