Join me in supporting congenital heart defect research!
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.
As most of you know (or don’t), River was born with Hypoplastic Right Heart Syndrome (HRHS) Unfortunately, this means she wasn’t getting enough blood flow to her lungs and she needed to have a series of surgeries in order to be able to get enough blood flow there. HRHS is extremely, extremely rare. Succession rates vary with each surgery and in Rivers case with having a genetic disorder, having a low birth weight, plus her heart defect, made her a high risk. Unfortunately, all these factors and odds were not in our favor. River is now a beautiful angel watching over us. This is why this walk and research to better understand CHD’s is SO important to me. While she was feisty, strong, and fought for as long as she could, I would give anything to have more time with my angel.
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.
