My Personal Fundraising Page

We're truly grateful for your visit to our team page!

Every 15 minutes in the United States, a baby is born with a congenital heart defect, making CHDs the most common birth defect in our country. The Congenital Heart Walk is dedicated to making a difference. Our mission is clear - we aim to raise funds to support The Children's Heart Foundation in its quest to advance the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of CHDs by funding groundbreaking research.

We invite you to join us in this mission. By supporting our team or even walking with us, you're contributing to research that can save and enhance the lives of babies born with CHDs, as well as children and adults living with these conditions. Your support makes a significant impact, and for that, we want to say a heartfelt thank you.

Will you join us in making a real difference? Please consider supporting our team or walking with us. Every step we take brings us closer to improving the lives of those affected by congenital heart defects.

On 11/22/2022, our beautiful, fierce, strong, fiesty daughter, Emma Faye, was born. Emma joins many other babies out there (1 in 100) having been born with a CHD. Emma had her first open heart surgery at 7 days old and her full TOF/PA repair on March 5, 2024. She will likely need several throughout her life. She is our heart warrior princess! 

We feel fortunate that medicine and technology have advanced so much in order to help her and others like her - but there is still more work to be done. Although CHDs are the most common birth defect, the research in this area is SEVERELY underfunded. 

Please help us raise funds and/or awareness, and we would love for you to join us at the walk!
