Welcome to My Fundraising Page
Thank you for visiting my Walk for 1 in 100 fundraising page. Adult Congenital Heart Disease is obviously very near and dear to me. I was born with Bicuspid Valve Aortic Stenosis. I've been followed by Cardiologists my entire life with multiple procedures done over the years and multiple limitations placed on physical activity throughout my life as well. I was lucky enough to find my way to an Adult Congenital Cardiologist in March 2018. I will forever be grateful that he encouraged me to finally see a cardiothoracic surgeon for more drastic intervention prior to attempting pregnancy. May 25, 2018 brought about my first open heart surgery with Aortic Valve repair and Aortic Aneurysm repair. This is the day my entire world changed forever. I am able to experience so much more out of life now. I've joined an intense cardio/strength exercise program 4 days a week that I'm able to keep up with for the first time in my life. I even completed my first 5K 6 months after surgery. Thanks to the advances in medicine and the evolution of Adult Congenital Cardiology, I also have a chance at a safe pregnancy with natural delivery. There really aren't words to adequately express how much these opportunities mean to me.
Please consider making a tax deductible contribution to support my fundraising efforts on behalf of the Adult Congenital Heart Association. All funds raised benefit CHD research and programs. I appreciate your support!
With love, Megan
