Emily is 1 in 100!
If you know my story, you know it's rare to be diagnosed with CHD's as an adult. After diagnosis and intervention at age 33, I've not slowed down. During my (successful!) pregnancy, my husband and I learned that there is still a long way to go in terms of education and training in the medical community. Our first OB did not think it was possible for me to carry safely to term - we became her teachers in that moment. And then another high-risk specialist said that we were being too picky about which cardiologist we saw - we became her teachers too.
Please consider making a tax deductible contribution to support my fundraising efforts on behalf of The Children’s Heart Foundation and the Adult Congenital Heart Association. All funds raised benefit CHD research and programs. I appreciate your support!
