We Love Sam

Our team We Love Sam is raising critical funds for congenital heart defects. Congenital heart defects (CHDs) are the most commonly occurring birth defect, affecting approximately 1 in 110 babies born, or a child born every 15 minutes. CHDs are the leading cause of birth-defect related mortality.

Our son Sam was born in August 2016 with Aortic Valve Stenosis, requiring a balloon catheterization procedure the day after birth. He goes in once a year for an echo and to meet with his cardiologist to check on things and has been doing great but we know that more interventions will be in his future. We cannot imagine a world where Sam would not be able to make us laugh, give the greatest hugs in the world or run circles around us, so we are very thankful for all that has been done the past 25 years through CHD research, but there's still so much more to be done. Every dollar in support of The Children’s Heart Foundation helps to further their mission: to fund the most promising research to advance the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of congenital heart defects. 

Please support our team, join us for the Milwaukee Congenital Heart Walk in October, or both! Thank you!!
