Happy Heart Day!

While celebrating everything hearts this month, remember our littlest heart warriors during CHD awareness week.

One in every 100 babies born in the U.S each year will be diagnosed with congenital heart defect, and up to  30% of those will be considered critical congenital heart defects, meaning those that will result in death without surgical correction within the first year of life. During this week of CHD awarness we do what we can to raise awareness for the detection and treatment of CHDs. Early detection is key in order to save the lives of children affected by a CHD. 

 Kiddo is our heart warrior. He was born with Tetralogy of Fallot and had open heart surgery at 6 months. He will most likely need another surgery in the future.
