Message From Ella and Her Family: We are so incredibly blessed to have so many loved ones supporting our family. The opportunity to walk in this event is one that has so many meanings. We get to celebrate everything Ella overcame and how far she has come since she was first diagnosed. This is also our opportunity to help others, the way we were helped during our time of need. The families we have met are all so amazing and we look forward to helping them in any way we can.
From a family who has been through it...every little thing you do to help, means the world to those in need.
Our Goal: 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!
