2022 Chicago Congenital Heart Walk

Team Beckett

Our team is raising funds for congenital heart defect research - join us!

Beckett was born on July 30, 2020 with a congenital heart defect called Atrioventricular Septal Defect (AV Canal Defect). She was born with holes both between her atria and her ventricles, and with only 1 heart valve. With the holes in her heart leading to blood flowing backwards to her lungs, her weight dropped and she had open heart surgery on December 2, 2020 at four months old. Her surgery was very successful, and she is happy and healthy today.

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 these babies - and everyone impacted by CHDs - live long and healthy lives. Because of research, today there is greater hope for babies born with, and adults living with, congenital heart defects.

Help us reach our fundraising goal by making a donation today. You can also become a member of our team and join us at the walk!
