Laura Elkomy

Emma has a moderate 5mm Atrial Septal Defect, which is a hole between the high pressure and low pressure sides of the top of her heart that causes oxygen rich blood to slip into the oxygen poor blood, making the heart work harder to pump blood through the lungs. There is long term concern of pulmonary hypertension which can cause congestive heart failure over time, and right sided heart enlargement. Our most recent echocardiogram has her cardiologist less than optimistic that it will close on its own, but the repair can be done in the cath lab and can wait until she is a little older as long as she remains asymptomatic.

Her CHD isn't as severe as some, but she still has hole in her heart. There are many kiddos out there with far more intensive defects that need immediate intervention and management. The money raised will go towards funding CHD research and could make a life saving difference to these heart warrior children. Consider joining my team. Donate, walk with us, or do both =)

Please share with your friends to help us raise money for kids like Emma!
