"Being an Adult congenital heart disease survivor, the funding for the Adult Congenital Heart Association is very important to me. Congenital heart defects affects 1 in 100 newborns making CHD the #1 birth defect. Congenital heart disease is also the #1 cause of birth related deaths, and there is no cure. As a 30 year old women who was born with shones complex, a CHD that consists of up to 4 defects on the left side of the heart. I have had 3 open heart surgery's, 4 pacemaker replacements, and numerous other procedures like caths and coartation of the aorta. I have a mechanical mitral valve and aortic valve. I am very lucky to be alive to say the least. Research, funding, and raising awareness for ACHA is so important to help CHD'rs live longer happier lives. -Team Captain Deserae"
