At 21 weeks pregnant, Kailea's parents were told their unborn daughter had a congenital heart defect called Ebstein's Anomaly. On March 5, 2019, Kailea was born a heart angel.
Although our time with her here on earth was extremely short, the impact she made on us and so many around her is incredible. Kailea continues to teach us so much about love, compassion, perseverance, grace, friendship, patience, and faith.
Our team is raising critical funds for congenital heart defects! 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.
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.
For those who join our team and raise a minimum of $25 towards your own personal fundraising goal, you will recieve a complimentary Kailea's Warriors t-shirt!
We appreciate all of the love and support we have received this past year!
