Our Team Fundraising Page
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.
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!
Maverick was diagnosed with HLHS in May 2020 at 20 weeks gestation. From there our journey began. Maverick was born 9/14/20. At 3 days old he had the Norwood procedure. From there he was on oxygen and a feeding tube with thickened liquids until after his second surgery, the Glenn procedure was Feb. 2021. After surgery, he was able to be weaned off of oxygen before leaving the hospital, and a few months later, he was weaned off of his feeding tube and thickened liquids. Since then, life has been pretty normal. We go for routine heart clinic appointments every 4-6 months, and every appointment ends on a positive note. Maverick is a rowdy rambunctious Heart Warrior that never fails to amaze us. We are so excited to do this walk in honor of him and all of the Heart Warriors.
