Angel Alice's A-Team
Alice Dorothy was born on April 1, 2022 with a rare congenital heart defect (CHD) called truncus arteriosus. The impact of this CHD during her development led to the structure known as the truncus arteriosus failing to properly divide into the pulmonary trunk and aorta. On April 19, 2022, Alice underwent open heart surgery at Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago. While the surgery itself was considered to be a success, Alice suffered complications during recovery, and remained on ECMO for the following 3 weeks. On May 10, 2022, she passed away in the loving embrace of her parents, John & Lindsay.
To honor and celebrate Alice, we are forming Angel Alice’s A-Team to walk in the Chicago 2022 Congenital Heart Walk for the Children’s Heart Foundation in Chicago. Please support Angel Alice’s A-Team or join us for the walk, which will take place in Lincoln Park on Saturday, June 11, 2022*!
Why give? Congenital heart defects are the most common birth defect in the nation, impacting ONE in every 110 babies each year. The Children’s Heart Foundation exists to make sure these babies - and everyone impacted by CHDs - live long and healthy lives. Because of research, today there is greater hope for babies born with, and adults living with, congenital heart defects.
Help us reach our fundraising goal by making a donation today. You can also become a member of our team and join us at the walk!
Thank you in advance for your support!
