We are walking for Benji.
Congenital Hearts Defects occur in approximately 1 out of 100 live births. These defects can be something as small as a hole in the heart or something major requiring a heart transplant for survival. My son, Benji was born with a Critical Congenital Heart Defect, the Coarctation of the Aorta (CoA) and a Bicuspid Aortic Valve (BAV) with stenosis. At a week of age, he had closed heart surgery to correct the CoA with a subclavian flap repair. This repair has been successful and he has been a mighty warrior for the last 12 years.
This success is because of PEOPLE like YOU and I making a difference and supporting research into Congenital Heart Defects. Not just in why they happen but most importantly how to correct them so the patient has a VERY good quality of life.
Benji is an OVERCOMER!
