Welcome to Team HurriKane
Thank you for visiting my page for the Virtual Congenital Heart Walk. Raising funds for CHD research is critically important to all Heart Warriors and Heart Angels, and personally very meaningful to me.
Prior to our son Kane being born on September 1, 2015, we had no idea that 1 in 100 babies are born ever day with a congenital heart defect(CHD) and CHD's are the number one birth defect in this country. In the matter of days our lives completely changed and we found ourselves living months at a time inside the four walls of hospitals from Chicago to Boston Children's, praying for treatment options that would give us more time with Kane. Time was the one thing we needed but it wasn't on our side. The potential heart valve needed to help Kane's long term condition was not available and still in early trials. After 5 open heart surgeries and dozens of other medical interventions, Kane passed away 16 months after he was born.
I support the Children's Heart Foundation and our family walks every year to support medical advancements that can help other heart families .We know there are families right now praying for medical advancements for their children and racing against the clock. This year we may be walking in separate cities but we are all walking with the same mission in mind- To fund children's heart research and give our CHD warriors the best chance at a long, healthy life.
Please help us to fund CHD research by making a $10 donation to my personal fundraising page and by walking! I'll be organizing an "unofficial" walk in Morrison CO, and am excited that friends and family can partake anywhere across the globe! I will be sending CHF branded masks to anyone who donates $10 to our walk team. Together we can walk safely and make a life-saving difference!
