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.
Grace was born with Hypoplastic right heart syndrome and Pulmonary atresia, she recieved her miracle on Aug 26, 2016. At just three months old she recieved a new heart. In October 2018, she was diagnosed with Post-Transplant Lymphoproliferative Disorder, but after four rounds of chemotherapy she has been thriving and continues to be a blessing. Being a heart recipient has opened Grace up to many challenges, but she has proven to be a tough little girl and will continue to overcome anything that comes her way.
