Join me in supporting congenital heart defect research!
A little CHD info:
Congenital heart defects are present at birth and affect the structure and function of the heart. About 1 in 100 babies are born with CHD, which makes this the #1 birth defect in the United States. Approximately 25% of children born with CHD will require heart surgery and other interventions in order to survive. Because of research breakthroughs, more than 85% of babies born with CHD live to at least 18 years old. However, children with critical forms of CHD are less likely to see adulthood. These are just some of the reasons why supporting and funding research in this area of medicine is so important!
Raising funds for congenital heart defect (CHD) research is not only critically important to all babies born with, and children and adults living with CHDs, it is also personally meaningful to me.
By donating to help me reach my 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.
