#BillyWalksForCHDResearch - I am raising funds for The Children's Heart Foundation
I am walking to support The Children's Heart Foundation, an organization that has given me the greatest gift I have ever received and will ever receive--LIFE! Indeed, if it were not for CHF's generous funding of a research study making my second open-heart surgery possible 22 years ago, there's a good chance I might not be here writing this. Please take a minute to watch my story in the video on this page or read it here:
But what if I don't have a minute and only have exactly 17 seconds? Well then, here's the tl;dr version of why I need your help:
While I am lucky to be one of the people born with a congenital heart defect (#CHD) who is now able to live a healthy life, there are millions more children out there worldwide for which this may not be the case without desperately needed research into these issues like that which miraculously helped save my life only a short while into it.
This is where you come in and why I am asking for your support as I walk on June 12 so that the millions of #CHD kids out there can grow up and participate in this walk too!
Please help me pass on the gift of LIFE to millions of kids born like me!
