Thank you for visiting my page. Raising funds for Congenital Heart Defect (CHD) research is critically important and personally very meaningful to me and my family. Please help us to fund CHD research by making a donation to my personal fundraising page. Together we can make a life-saving difference!

1 in 100 children are born with CHD, thats about 40,000 babies in the U.S. each year. There are over 40 different types of CHD's, some requiring surgery and some just requiring annual monitoring. Unfortunately, there is no cure and research is absolutely underfunded.

Our daughter is 1 in 100. On November 20th, our daughter Nora Mae was was diagnosed with a heart defect called VSD (Ventricular Septal Defect). Due to the size of the hole, surgery would be required to fix the defect. A month later, on December 20th, Nora had her VSD repair surgery and it was a complete success. She did so well, she was able to come home just 48 hours after open heart surgery with a smile on her face.

Having a child get diagnosed with a heart defect is the scariest thing we could have imagined. Everyone in the Heart Center and the PICU at Akron Children's Hospital were absolutely wonderful and it made our stay a little bit more comforting.

Thankfully Nora's VSD was caught when she was just 3 months old so the problem could be fixed early on in her life. Now she'll live a normal life with just routine check ups as she grows up.

Sincerely,
Chelsea
