Katelyn Hall

Ruby was born with a congenital heart defect called Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome. Evan and I didn't know anything about CHD in babies until we were experiencing it firsthand.

Congenital heart defects are the #1 birth defect in the United States. Nearly 1 in 100 babies - a baby born every 15 minutes - 40,000 each year in the U.S. alone, are born with heart defects. Ruby is 1 in 100!

The Congenital Heart Walk series is the largest walk series solely dedicated to CHD research, uniting supporters of The Children’s Heart Foundation from around the country, to help fund CHD research that improves survival, longevity and quality of life for our community.

Since 1996, The Children’s Heart Foundation has funded more than $11.1 million in CHD research across 103 research projects, helping lead to improved diagnostics, earlier interventions, groundbreaking procedures and life-saving treatments for patients with CHDs. Because of research, more than 85% of children born with CHDs now live to adulthood, more effective and less invasive treatment options are available, and the more than 2 million Americans who live with CHDs are enjoying improved lives.

Raising funds for CHD research is critically important and personally very meaningful to us. Please help us to fund CHD research by making a donation to my personal fundraising page. Together we can make a life-saving difference!

Love,
Ruby, Katelyn and Evan!
