Today is the last day of National Congenital Heart Defect Awareness Week. According to the American Heart Association – Out of 1,000 births, nine babies will have some form of congenital heart disorder. Nearly twice as many children die from congenital heart disease in the United States each year as die from all forms of childhood cancers combined, yet funding for CHD research is five times less than for pediatric cancer. Little Warriors fight against CHD every day. Little Angels have left many who will continue to fight in their memories.
Fight on Allie! You are so strong and brave.
