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.
Olivia was born with a congenital heart defect called Tetralogy of Fallot. She had life-saving open heart surgery when she was 6 weeks old. Since then, she has lived a normal and active life. She enjoys being on the dance team, gymnastics, skiing, and keeping up with her brothers. However, she does all of this without a pulmonary valve. At some point in the future, she will need another surgery to replace this valve. As scary as that is, we realize that we are the lucky ones. As members of the CHD community, Joe and I have met far too many families that have lost their children to CHD.
I hope you'll join me by supporting my fundraising efforts as I work to raise funds for both life-saving research and research that could result in less invasive measures to help survivors like Olivia.
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. By 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!
