Why We Walk
2021 Central Iowa Heart Walk Digital Experience
Neviah was born with D-transposition of the greater vessels meaning her pulmonary artery and Aorta were connected to the wrong sides of the heart. She went under open heart surgery at just 4 days old.
Scar tissue built up over the years as her heart grew so again in kindergarten Neviah needed open heart surgery again. Dr. Becker and Dr. Houckmuth were her surgeons each time and monitor her yearly.
We are so grateful for the advancements made in heart surgeries and care for kids like Neviah. Your donation funds incredible research. And lobby's for heart legislation such as a pulse ox test for newborns which came out after Neviah was born.
Join is and walk where you are on May 1st and share your pictures with us! We are thankful
