Team Janie B

Team Janie B walks in memory of Jane Beatrice Finbow.  Jane was diagnosed with several Congenital Heart Defects while in utero.  Her heart defects proved too complicated for surgical intervention.  Jane lived her whole life in the loving arms of her family.  We miss her every day.

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.

Please support our team, join us for the Congenital Heart Walk, or both to fund the most promising research - for children like Jane and families like ours!
