Why We Walk
2020 Lowcountry Heart Walk
As many of you know, our son Carter was born with a congenital heart defect called Tetralogy of Fallot. He had to undergo open heart surgery when he was 3 months old at MUSC Children's Hospital to repair his little heart. His team of doctors and nurses was absolutely amazing and we are so fortunate that Carter has made a full recovery.
This experience has opened our eyes to just how important research, funding and care is for babies with CHD. Heart defects are the most common birth defects, with nearly one of every 100 babies born with a CHD. We are so very lucky that Carter's condition was mild compared to what some other babies are struggling with at MUSC and other hospitals all over the country.
We are walking on February 29th to honor Carter and all of the other little Heart Warriors out there. Please help us honor Carter and support the American Heart Association, who provides valuable funding for CHD research.
Thank you in advance for your support!
