2024 Corridor Heart Walk
Child Survivor Ambassador: Jordan
Jordan is our 2024 Corridor Heart Walk Ambassador! Jordan is 5years-old and lives in Clinton, Iowa with her dad, Derek, mom, Jenna, and 7-year-old brother, Emmett.
Did you know congenital heart defects are the #1 birth defects in babies?
Jordan was born with a congenital heart defect that includes an AV canal defect, coarctation of the aorta, and Left Ventricular Outflow Tract Obstruction. Jordan is a survivor, a thriver, and has received the care she has needed to push through her condition. As a community, we must rally around heart disease to help support critical research necessary to continue to treat hearts like Jordan’s.
The Gabel Family is one example of why it is necessary to continue to fund lifesaving research. The technology used to perform today’s surgeries on both children and adults continues to advance because of the funding given to research institutions all over the country. You can make an impact by helping us continue to power the life-saving research as well as education to raise awareness about heart and stroke right here in Iowa.
It only takes a few steps to save lives like Jordan.
Sign up for the Heart Walk, step out, and share your personal why.
