Join me in supporting congenital heart defect research!
Hi there! Thanks for visiting my fundraising page. My name is Caroline, and I was born with a congenital heart defect called hypoplastic left heart syndrome (HLHS). This just means that the left side of my heart didn’t form. I’ve had many surgeries to correct this— my heart will never be fixed. I also have heart block, which means that the top and bottom of my heart don’t “talk” to each other and don’t beat in sync properly. For this reason, I had a permanent pacemaker surgically implanted into my abdomen when I was two years old. I am on my fifth pacemaker now, and on August 22, 2022, I will be ten years post-op!
I have been raising money for CHD research for as long as I can remember, but this year will be the first time I fundraise for Children’s Heart Foundation, and I’m so excited! Please help my team to reach our goal of $5,000 before the Heart Walk in Grand Rapids on September 11, 2022. If you would like to join my team, please email me at email@example.com or message me on Instagram (@ameaningfulblog).
When I am not raising money for CHD research, I am at school or work. This spring I graduated from Grand Valley State University with a B.S. in psychology. I am going to continue my education, and have already started working toward my M.Ed. in school counseling. I also have an Instagram, TikTok (@ameaningfulblog) where I share about my life and what it means to have a CHD.
By donating to help me, and my team, reach our fundraising goal, you’re helping to fund the most promising research into CHDs— America’s most common birth defect.
Together we can make a life-saving difference! Thank you in advance for your support.
