Help the Martin Family Support Congenital Heart Research!
HELP SUPPORT TEAM BIG TRIGG!
Raising funds for congenital heart defect (CHD) research is not only critically important to all babies born with CHDs, it is also personally meaningful to us.
Our son, Trigger, was born with a rare congenital heart defect called a Double Aortic Arch. Instead of one aorta he had two, which wrapped around his trachea making it difficult for him to eat and breathe. At 4 months old, he underwent heart surgery at the Rocky Mountain National Hospital for Children in Denver, Colorado. His heart defect was able to be corrected, and he is now 9 months old and thriving!
We are forever grateful for his heart team, especially his surgeon, Dr. Turner. But we know his surgery would have never happened without past research, which is why we are supporting the Children’s Heart Foundation.
Neal and I also understand that we are some of the lucky ones, and not every parent gets to leave the hospital with their baby in their arms. Seeing the other children in the PICU during Trigg’s recovery really touched us personally, and is something we will never forget. The funds we raise are for every parent and child whose lives have been or will be affected by CHDs.
By donating to help us 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.
Neal, Clare, Gwen, Monroe, and Trigger Martin
