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.
Our daughter, Layla Jane Daley, was diagnosed with a heart defect known as hypoplastic left heart syndrome (HLHS) at our 20 week ultrasound. We learned that, thanks to research and advancements in medicine, there was an option for her to have surgery, which could give her a chance to live a long and happy life. We were scared but hopeful. 40 years ago, this surgery wasn't even an option, and now, babies born with HLHS are able to live longer, fuller lives than ever before. Unfortunately, our Layla never got the chance to have her surgery. She was born August 30, 2022 and died peacefully in our arms that same day. Layla gained her angel wings and she will always hold a special place in our hearts. Our hope is to support CHD research and treatment so that more babies like Layla will have a fighting chance and parents of babies with CHDs won't have to say goodbye too soon.
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.
