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

We have personally been impacted by CHD. In 1990, our brother Paul was born with a congenital heart defect known as hypoplastic left heart syndrome. At just 32 days old he received his first heart transplant, making him the youngest person in the state of Texas, at the time, to successfully undergo a major transplant surgery. He beat all the odds and was called an anomaly by the doctors and nurses at Texas Children's. It wasn't until 2018 that his doctors began to see deterioration of his heart and decided to put him back on the list to receive a donated organ. In April of this year he received his second successful heart transplant and in March 2023 he will marry his beautiful fiancee Felicia!

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!

Thank you in advance for your support!
