A Mended Heart is a Special Heart #GiannaLynn
Thank you for visiting our Congenital Heart Walk team fundraising page. We will be walking in honor of Gianna, our heart warrior. Gianna was born with a large VSD (Ventricular septal defect), she had open heart surgery at the age of 3 months, she is thriving in her development. We are walking to raise awareness for others who are born and living with CHD (Congenital Heart Disease).
Congenital heart defects are the #1birth defect in the U.S. with nearly 1 in100 babies born with heart defects each year. There are between 2 and 3 million people living with CHDs including more than 1 million adults. Despite advances in medicine, 15% of children with CHDs do not live past their 18th birthday. CHD research and programs are severely underfunded.
The Congenital Heart Walk aims to correct this problem at the grassroots level—families helping families!
