Thank you for visiting my fundraising page for the Congenital Heart Walk and supporting TEAM COOPER! As many of you may know, I was born with the congenital heart defect of Pulmonary Stenosis. This condition narrows the pulmonary valve, restricting proper blood flow from the heart to the lungs which therefor prevents blood from being properly oxygenated. At 3 days old, my defect was corrected with open heart surgery at St. Louis Children’s Hospital. Now, 30 years later I am living a full and healthy life!
Raising funds for CHD research is critically important to all Heart Warriors and Heart Angels and very personal to me. Congenital heart defects are the most commonly occurring birth defect, affecting approximately 1 in 110 babies born, or a child born every 15 minutes. 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 help us to fund CHD research by making a donation a to the Team Cooper fundraising page and/or participating in our 2021 Heart Walk!
