My Baby's Got Heart is an online support website that provides families and patients links and support for Congenital Heart Defects (CHD). Our store products are sold to help raise awareness of CHD and to support our fundraising efforts. We raise money through our crafts to donate toys and craft supplies to Children's Hospitals.
My daughter was born with CHD, she has undergone 4 open heart surgeries before she was 1 year old. She will have to have atleast one more before she is a teenager.
CHD is one of the least talked about birth defects, but amazingly one of the most common. For every 100-125 babies born every day, about 8-10 will have congenital heart defects.
The problem with our advanced medical practices in the U.S. is that those not previously afflicted with CHD in their family, are unaware of the capabilities we now have for survivability. 20 years ago, my daughter would not be laughing and hugging and learning how to walk. I thank every day that we have progressed so far in the last 20 years to allow so many of these bright young inspirations to show us the true meaning of love and life.
