Welcome to My 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.
My niece, Gemma, was diagnosed in utero at 20 weeks with a Hypoplastic right ventricle/Double inlet left ventricle. On August 18, 2019 Gemma was born, and did extremely well during her 11 night NICU stay. By 10 months old Gemma had 2 catheterizations and 2 open heart surgeries. These interventions don't cure her CHD, but they allow her to survive with half a heart.
Funded research is making a very big difference in the lives of CHD patients, helping to reduce incidences and increase survival, longevity and quality of life. Research has made a very big impact, and with survival and longevity increasing, even more research is needed to help address lifelong challenges that CHD patients will face. Every dollar in support of The Children’s Heart Foundation helps to further their mission: to fund the most promising research to advance the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of congenital heart defects.
Please support our team, join us for the Congenital Heart Walk, or both!
