I am joining millions of others to help save lives with the American Heart Association!
This hits close to home for me because I was born with a heart defect, tricuspid atresia. I had my first open heart surgery when I was 9 days old!! I have had 3 open heart surgeries and am doing great! I have checkups with my cardiologist twice each year. I am very blessed.
At my school, I am learning how I can help make a difference by raising lifesaving donations to help kids with heart disease. I am also learning about my own heart, and how to keep it healthy. And I am getting active!
I am excited about raising money for other kids - kids with hearts that don't exactly work right and to help fund new medicines and treatments to be discovered.
Please help me make a difference!
