Welcome to Team Austin's 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.
At 20 weeks pregnant with twins, we were told "there is something wrong with Baby B's heart". We'd later learn that one of our twins would be born with a critical heart defect called HLHS. Austin and his twin were born premature. Austin had less than a 50% chance of survival. After two lifesaving open heart surgeries, one major stomach surgery, numerous caths, and countless other tests and procedures Austin came home at 151 days old for the 1st time. Austin has now had 3 open heart surgeries and a few more caths. Our 3 year old son is thriving, which would not be possible without research. Soon, Austin will have another cath and open heart surgery. There is no cure for HLHS. The hope of our family is that by raising funds for research, one day there may be something that can help our son continue to thrive into adulthood!
Please help us to fund CHD research by making a donation to Team Austin! Together we can make a life-saving difference!
