Saving and improving lives can be as simple as taking a walk. And I know I'm making a difference in the lives of others by participating in the Heart Walk.
But it's not just my efforts alone that will one day help us see a world free of heart disease and stroke. I am walking with a team of heart heros because together, we will have an even greater impact. And you can help us change the world, one step at a time, by donating to my fundraiser.
Your donation will fund groundbreaking research that keeps hearts beating and helps people enjoy longer, healthier lives. I can't do it alone.
We walk for Alivia, born a fighter with a funky heart. Diagnosed with Tetralogy of Fallot with absent pulmonary valve syndrome at 20 weeks. She had her full repair at four months old, and spent two months at American Family Childrens Hospital. Her recovery was full of complications including a stroke, blood clot, sepsis, complete heart block, and chylothorax. Due to the complete heart block obtained from her surgery, she was give a pace maker. That pace maker failed after one month, and she had to urgently get a completely new one placed via thoracotomy. Livi was also given a g tube to give her more time to learn how to eat again.
Fast forward two years and Livi is now a spunky toddler who loves to snuggle, wrestle her twin brother Ash, and play with her penguin ‘waddle’. Her heart is doing amazing and getting stronger everyday!
Please help me now by donating. Because every step counts. And together we are helping save lives!
