Did you know every 15 mins, a baby is born with a Congenital Heart Defect (CHD)? CHDs are the most commonly-occurring birth defect, affecting nearly 1 in 110 children born, and are the leading cause of birth defect-related deaths in the United States.

Congenital Heart Defect is exactly what it sounds like. Babies are born with a defect in their heart...

There is no explanation on why CHDs happen... it's not something simple like "don't eat shrimp while pregnant." Nope, it can happen to any baby without any rhyme or reason behind it...

There is also NO cure... a lot of babies will undergo heart surgery and have to do follow ups for the rest of their lives, including 2nd, 3rd, 4th and even 5th surgeries...

But there is hope! To date, The Children’s Heart Foundation has funded more than $15 million in Congenital Heart Defects research, helping to improve survival rates, longevity, and quality of life for CHD patients.​

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.

By donating to help us reach our fundraising goal, you’re helping to fund the most promising research into CHDs.

Together we can make a life-saving difference! Thank you in advance for your support.
