Chicago Congenital Heart Walk

Memories of Mae

Our team is raising critical funds for congenital heart defects in memory our our daughter Mae.  Mae was born with an Atrial Septal Defect (ASD) and died suddenly before she could have surgery to repair her heart.  We miss her and think about her every day.  Plaease consider walking or donating to this great cause.  

  Congenital heart defects are the most commonly occurring birth defect, affecting approximately 1 in 110 babies born, or a child born every 15 minutes. Congenital heart defects are the leading cause of birth-defect related mortality. Mae was born with an Atrial Septal Defect (ASD) that was diagnosed at 9 month's old.    


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.
