Team Conor

Thank you for visiting. This cause is very dear to our team, and we appreciate all the support we can get!

All of the money raised during this campaign will go to the Children's Heart Foundation for funding CHD research!

Just 3 days before he was born, our little heart warrior Conor Patrick McCarthy was diagnosed with a trifecta of congenital heart defects. Coarctation Of the Aorta (COA), mild bicuspid aortic valve and 2 large holes in his heart.

Thanks to the amazing doctors and the technology available today, we had an immediate plan for him for when he was born. Had it not been diagnosed beforehand, Conor might not be here today.

Many times, a child with chronic congenital heart defects (CCHD) appear to be healthy and get to go home. It is within the first few days after birth that symptoms of heart failure set in and become an immediate emergency sometimes resulting in death. Conor was one of the lucky ones who didn't fall through the cracks under our doctors watchful eyes and excellent communication!

This is why it is so important to help fund research and raise awareness about congenital heart defects. If you're pregnant or know someone who is, please have them check their babies heart! It should be routine around the 20 week anatomy scan to also see a pediatric cardiologist who can look closely at their most vital organ to ensure its functionality. In the hospital, you can also request a Pulse-Ox test for your baby as part of the newborn screening!! This simple test is done by just sticking a monitor on their foot and monitoring for a few short minutes. 1 in 100 babies are born with a form of CHD. It is so worth it to get every test available.

Together we can make a difference! - Team Conor
