On September 26, 2015, Erin and her sister Rachel (aka Aunt Cheese) attended the Pediatric Congenital Heart Association's (PCHA) Congenital Heart Gala held at the Milwaukee Art Museum. It was a wonderful and, at the same time, very emotional event. The event raised over $50,000 and honored several individuals who have been working hard to help the PCHA’s mission to “Conquer Congenital Heart Disease.” This very important organization works with patients, parents, providers, and partner organizations in order to effectively advocate for improved quality and outcomes through CHD education, research and awareness. We strongly believe in and support the PCHA’s goal to empower CHD parents with the information necessary to become effective advocates for their children.
