Please help us support congenital heart defect research in honor of our very own heart warrior, Sam.

Sam was diagnosed in utero with transposition of the great arteries, ventricular inversion, ventricular septal defect, and subaortic stenosis. He was born on November 2, 2017, and had his first open heart surgery at just 19 days old. After 7 long weeks in the hospital recovering, he was able to come home for good on January 1, 2018.

Since then, he has been growing and thriving. He recently had another open heart surgery for a subaortic resection, after which he was in complete heart block and received a pacemaker just a week later.

Sam is the coolest, happiest kid we know, and we're participating in the CHD walk in his honor to raise awareness and funds for CHD research. Congenital heart defects affect 1 in 110 kids born, and there is much that can be done for early diagnosis and intervention to give these kids a better chance at a normal life.

Please help us by contributing to Team SamJam. No donation is too small. Thank you for your support!
