Thank you for visiting our page. Raising funds for CHD research is critically important and personally very meaningful to us. My wife Lorena and I are the proud parents of three-year-old Miranda. We struggle to get pregnant so when we finally became pregnant with Miranda, we were beyond excited. During our 20-week appointment at the perinatologist’s office we received the news that i wish nobody would never have to hear "there is something wrong with the baby's heart". After trying for so long to be parents this news were devastating to hear. After some additional testing they were able to determine what was wrong with Miranda’s heart. Doctors confirmed that Miranda has Hypoplastic Hipoplastic Right Heart Syndrome, missing the tricuspid valve (also known as tricuspid atresia) , had transposition of the great arteries (D-TGA) and a ventricular septal defect (VSD) . When Miranda was born January 2016 and had her first open heart surgery on February 12th (during CHD week) at 4 weeks old . During this surgery they added a pulmonary band to restrict extra blood from going to her lungs. At six months old, Miranda was ready for the Glenn procedure, which was the second of the three surgeries she needed to receive. Miranda is due to have the Fontan procedure in the next two to three years, which is the third surgery she would need. There is not cure for CHD, we dont know what is going to happen in the future, but we want to make sure she has a happy life and is able to enjoy everything that she does in her life. Please help us to support The Children's Heart Foundation , and organization that funds research for critical Congenital Heart Disease like Miranda's. We believe that research will ensure her a better future Thank you for your support !! Sincerely, Lorena, Daniel & Miranda
