2022 Houston Congenital Heart Walk

Team Melody


Hello family and friends!

I know many of you have already been following our little warrior’s journey, but for those who are new, here’s a little background.

Melody Teresa was diagnosed in utero with A CHD known as Tet like DORV and bilateral clubfeet. After birth Melody had genetic testing and it was confirmed that these were both caused by a small missing piece of chromosome. (22q11.2 deletion or DiGeorge syndrome) this has affected almost every system in Melody’s body. The biggest challenge Melody has faced has been her cardiac problems. At just 4 days old Melody had her first life saving procedure which is why she is here today. Since then Melody has had a total of 6 heart cath procedures 1 open heart surgery and she is scheduled for her 7th cath procedure on October 19.
We are walking to raise awareness for Melody and all the heart warriors and angels that were taken too soon because of CHD.

We appreciate all the help and support we have received since day one! Your love and prayers are what has gotten us through each procedure, doctor appointment, hospital stay and days leading up to each one.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!


with gratitude,

Sanchez-Dillon Family
Aka Team Melody
