Helping children is something near and dear to my heart.
My beautiful son Nikolas started fighting for his life even before he was born. He was diagnosed with Pulmonary Stenosis, a debilitating disease characterized as the narrowing of the pulmonary artery. From the moment Nikolas entered this world, we knew he was a fighter. At only 5 months old, his first surgery was performed. Going through this with my newborn was the hardest situation our family ever had to endure.
Today, eleven years later, Nikolas is a cheerful young man full of life and zest. Thanks to hard work, modern medicine and support, we were able to prevail. I am now dedicated to helping families who are going through similar situations.

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.
