Welcome to Erin's Personal Page
Thank you for supporting theWalk for 1 in 100! 1 in 100 babies are born with a congenital heart defect. Some outgrow it, some go through life just getting checkups every so often, some have multiple surgeries to repair and/or replace parts of the heart and some even have multiple heart transplants. Just in my family... my paternal grandfather ("Pop Pop"), my dad (Brian) and his brother (my Uncle Dennis) and my brother (Sean) were all born with heart defects. My grandfather, uncle and I all had open heart surgeries to repair the defects. I've had 3 open heart surgeries, so far, and more repairs are in my future.
This is a very special cause to my family and me. This walk is only 2 miles, a family-friendly walk. The distance is not great but the cause is. The Children's Heart Foundation and the Adult Congenital Heart Association join together here to raise awareness for CHD and funds for research. If you can, please donate to our team. If you can't, I understand and I hope you will just think good thoughts for our team and for the many, many babies, children and adults who have CHDs. Or, feel free to join us on April 21st in Boston!
Thank you very much from the bottom of my "heart"!
(And, thank you to my amazing, most supportive family. I don't know what I would do without them! XOXO)
