Blake's Heart Journey

♥️Today kicks off CHD awareness week.♥️

Eight years ago we had never heard of CHD. Today it’s part of our life, but especially this month and especially this week. As something that affects so many (1 in 100) and without a cure, these heart warriors and angels deserve the best! Raising awareness and sharing how you can help is what we do! ?Meet our Blake!? Blake was born with multiple congenital heart defects. He has conquered two heart surgeries and is a thriving 7 year old rambunctious, energetic, competitive boy! The details of his heart are complex, amazing, and scary all mixed together. This big guy has taken us to our knees, shown us joy and gratitude on an incredible level, and taught us so much in his 8 years. Blake is where he is today because of all the medical advancements that came before him and those that continue to evolve. We hope you will consider a donation for further advancement in medical care for these warriors.  No amount is too small.  

Together we can accomplish so much!
