Welcome to The Terrapin Heart Warriors Team Page
Thank you for visiting our fundraising page for the Congenital Heart Walk. Raising funds for CHD research is important to all Heart Warriors and Heart Angels, and personally very meaningful to us. We have been participating in the annual heart walk since 2016 to help raise critically important funds that advance research efforts to combat congenital heart defects through varying treatment options and by way of early detection. Another main goal of participating in these walks is to raise awareness for what is the most common birth defect impacting babies. 1 in 4 children will be born with a congenital heart defect; and of those most will need surgical interventions at some point in their life.
Our heart warrior, Declan, had his first surgery to implant a pacemaker just prior to his first birthday. Due to complications the pacemaker needed to be replaced and he had his second surgery just prior to his fifth birthday. Declan is by all other accounts a completely healthy, happy, inquisitive little boy that exudes positive energy everywhere he goes. He is the light of our life and the best buddy to his younger brother Levi!
Please help us to fund CHD research by making a donation to our personal fundraising page. Together we can make a life-saving difference!
