Thank you for visiting Mia's Minions donation page. This cause is very personal to us, as our daughter, Mia, is a CHD Survivor. Raising funds for CHD research is critically important to ensuring other children can have the same positive outcomes as our little girl.

Please help us to fund CHD research by making a donation. Together we can make a life-saving difference!

Mia’s CHD Story:
Our little “Heart Warrior” was born March 30, 2016 and had a heart murmur. The pediatrician was not initially concerned, but ordered an echocardiogram to be safe. When the results came back, Mia was diagnosed with multiple ventricular septal defects. We took our happy baby home, but within a week she was in congestive heart failure. It became harder and harder to manage her symptoms as her heart swelled and put pressure on her other organs. Feeding was a constant struggle for her, and Mia just wasn’t gaining weight no matter how hard we tried to supplement her.

At 3 months old our little Mia went in for open heart surgery at New York Presbyterian’s Morgan Stanley Children’s Hospital. We knew going in that it was a difficult surgery and repairing all of her defects would likely require multiple operations. After many hours waiting, the surgeon walked out to deliver the news. Then a miracle happened as he said “We got them all”.

After recovery it was like a switch flipped, as all the things we struggled with for Mia changed. She was breathing normally and eating like she never had before. We know how fortunate we are to have this outcome, but it’s not just luck. None of this would have been possible without our amazing cardiologist, surgeon, all the incredible people of NYP, and organizations like this that push research forward and help ensure other children can have the same chance at life as our Mia.


Sincerely,
Matthew
