We walk and fundraise for the AHA in memory of my son Weston, who passed away at just 7 weeks young from a congenital heart defect.
On May 17, 2011, we welcomed our first son into the world. Within hours we learned that he had a major heart defect and needed to be transported to the U of M Children’s Hospital. Over the next seven weeks, he went through two open-heart surgeries to fix his transposition of the great arteries, multiple holes in his heart, and aortic stenosis. Sadly, our sweet son lost his battle against congenital heart disease.
No family should have to deal with what we went through. My family now works to raise awareness for congenital heart disease, and pre-natal diagnosis. Did you know 1 in 100 babies are born with congenital heart disease?
Your donation will fund groundbreaking research that literally keeps hearts beating and helps people have longer, healthier lives.
Have a heart and help me reach my goal today!
