Half a Heart, Twice the Fight - Owen Burns Fundraising Page for CHD
Thank you for visiting our team page! Every 15 minutes, a baby in this country is born with a congenital heart defect, making CHDs America's most common birth defect. The Congenital Heart Walk is dedicated to raising funds to support The Children's Heart Foundation's mission: to advance the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of CHDs by funding the most promising research.
As many of you know, our son was born with a congenital heart disease (CHD), for which we are still in the hospital for, waiting on our second of three anticipated open heart surgeries. Though 1 in 5000 are born with HLHS (what Owen has), 1 in every 100 newborns are born with congenital heart disease, making it the most common birth defect.
Will you join us? By supporting our team or joining us in our walk, you're supporting research that will help save and improve the lives of babies born, and children and adults living, with CHDs. Thank you!
