Welcome to My Personal Page
I am participating in the 2021 Pittsburgh Congenital Heart Walk in honor of a special little LEGENDARY boy named Jesse and his wonderful parents Mark and Nichole. Please consider donating to support this great cause
Mark and Nichole’s Story: “At our 20-week ultrasound, we discovered that our son Jesse Albert would be born with a rare congenital heart disease. Tricuspid Atresia, a type of hypoplastic right heart syndrome, is a heart condition in which the right side of Jesse's heart did not fully develop during the earliest weeks of pregnancy. Although CHD is fairly common in babies, conditions such as Tricuspid Atresia occur in about 1 in 10,000 births. This condition has required Jesse to undergo two surgeries, a heart catherization, and a few emergency room visits in his first five months. He recently underwent his second planned surgery called the Glenn procedure on May 3, 2021. His next planned surgery will be when he is around 2-3 years old.
As one might imagine, there are many complications for Jesse into adulthood. Children with CHD need lifelong medical care and support, and the funds raised by Jesse's Heart team will make a difference in lives of those with CHD.”
Please help us to fund CHD research by making a donation to my personal fundraising page. Together we can make a life-saving difference!
