On June 13th, we will be walking in the 2015 Chicago Congenital Heart Walk in memory of our sweet, beautiful daughter, Sadie, who passed away on December 7, 2014 from complications due to congenital heart defects.
Approximately one of every 100 babies is born with a congenital heart defect. In the United States, that translates to one baby every 15 minutes.
Congenital heart defects are the leading cause of infant death in the United States. Each year approximately 40,000 babies are born in the United States with a congenital heart defect. Like Sadie, 10% percent of those babies will not live to celebrate their first birthday.
Please consider joining Team Sadie and walking with us to support The Children's Heart Foundation and The Adult Congenital Heart Association and their missions to fund the most promising research to advance the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of congenital heart defects.
