Only 4 More Days Until the Raffle: Great Prizes

David has congenital heart disease.  Approximately 30 to 50% of babies with Down syndrome also have a heart defect, about half of those babies will have open heart surgery.  There was a time, within the last 20 or 30 years when babies with down syndrome were not deemed worthy of heart surgery.  Many of those babies lost their lives.  There was a time when no child had open heart surgery.  Luckily there have been great advances in open heart surgery for infants but much more research is needed.  That is why I am participating in the congenital heart walk.  Donations go to the children's heart foundation for research in congenital heart disease.  I would like nothing better than to see advances in surgery during my lifetime. 

So you can donate as little as $5 and be entered to win the great prizes on my blog: $25 PF Changs gift certificate, $25 Starbucks gift certificate, a heart bracelet, or a heart necklace.

So check out our donation page here.
