Raising funds for CHD research is critically important to all Heart Warriors and Heart Angels, and personally very meaningful to our family!
At 20 weeks pregnant with twins, we were told "there is something wrong with Baby B's heart". We later learned that one of our twins would be born with a critical heart defect called HLHS. Austin and his twin were born premature. Austin had less than a 50% chance of survival. After two lifesaving open heart surgeries, one major stomach surgery, numerous caths, and countless other tests and procedures Austin came home at 151 days old for the very 1st time. Our now 5 year old son is thriving and will start kindergarten in August 2022, which would not be possible without research. Austin had his 4th and most recent open heart surgery in September of 2021.
There is no cure for HLHS, so he will continue to receive treatment for the rest of his life. Our family continues to hope that through research, more advancements will come along to help our son and others battling CHD's. The Children's Heart Foundation continues to grow and fund critically needed research for congenital heart defects.
Please help us to fund CHD research by making a donation to Team Austin! Together we can make a life-saving difference!
