Our team is raising funds for congenital heart defect research - join us!
At 20 weeks pregnant Ashley and Andrew found out their youngest son Chandler has Tetralogy of Fallot, a critical CHD. This condition is a combination of four heart defects that are present at birth. Along with TOF, he has several other abnormalities that make his heart complex. In May 2021, at 3 months old, Chandler had his first open-heart surgery. There is no cure for CHD, even with improved treatments or if the heart defect has been repaired. Many children face a life-long risk of health problems and physical limitations. In a couple weeks, Chandler will turn 1 and although it hasn't been an easy journey, he continues to thrive – he is our heart warrior!
Why give? Congenital heart defects are the most common birth defect in the nation, impacting ONE in every 110 babies each year. The Children’s Heart Foundation exists to make sure Chandler - and everyone impacted by CHDs - live long and healthy lives.
