Thank you for visiting Team Fernie's Walk for 1 in 100 page- Our enthusiasm and gratitude for the Adult Congenital Heart Association grew even more intense this past year:
The Fernie family knows that it's like to sit anxiously waiting for news about a loved one in surgery to treat a congenital heart defect (CHD)- not just in childhood, but in adulthood too. We also know the (sometimes) daily challenges that come with CHD and what it takes to manage them.
The Adult Congenital Heart Association is the first place we go -in addition to our loved one's medical team- when we want to get an idea about what to expect in the next steps in our family's CHD journey. We started learning from ACHA back in 2005 and our family has continued to both learn from ACHA and take an active role in volunteering and/or working for ACHA ever since. Their educational resources, peer-to-peer support (Heart-to-Heart Ambassador's Program,) events in our community, National and Regional Conferences for people with CHD and families like ours are second to none.

We can't wait to keep giving back to Adult Congenital Heart Association, because it's been a vital part of our journey and helped us in so many ways.
