First, I'd like to thank you for taking the time to make it this far on Team Ronnie's Heartthrobs page!
For some of you who may not know, my son, Ronnie was born with a dysplastic tricuspid valve with regurgitation that allows for an enlarged right atrium. He is truly my little miracle and with every passing day, I am SO PROUD of how far he has come! At some point in my sons life, it is very likely he will need open heart surgery as his heart will not be able to keep up with him anymore. I made a life long promise to my son, to continue to raise funds for Congenital Heart Defect research. My hope, is that when the day comes where he will need surgical intervention, with the medical advancements made, the approach will be less invasive.
Although this years walk may not join us in person, we will still be joined together making a difference to fund the most promising research to advance the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of CHD's. The positive about this years walk being virtual, is that no matter where Ronnie's supporters may live- YOU can walk with US! Do you have a favorite walking trail you love, do you love strolls around your neighborhood? On October 4th, I hope you'll tie up your sneakers & walk with our family as we have done every year since Ronnie was born. Send us a photo, go live, take a video! Have fun with it & remember that your support is truly making a life-saving difference for a child and their family!
Please make a donation and/or share this page in honor of our Superman, Ronnie!
From the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU!
