Welcome to Team Meg's Heart!
I found the Adult Congenital Heart Association in January 2019- never before then had I known another person born with a Congenital Heart Defect. At the age of 4 years old, my doctor heard a murmur in my heart. The murmur led to an Angiogram surgery where they discovered I was born missing my left pulmonary artery and had no function in my left lung. 1 in 100 babies are born every year with a Congenital Heart Defect. Many babies defects are discovered at birth and they have surgery within the first few months of their lives. Others, like me, are discovered later on. Some people never need surgery, others have multiple throughout their lives. Each defect is unique, but we all have similar symptoms together. You donation and participation mean so much to not only me, but every adult with a Congenital Heart Defect. All babies grow to be adults one day and it can be difficult finding the right support through an ACHA approved Cardiologist. Many adults still see their Pediatric Cardiologists because there aren’t any other options near them! With your help, we can make a difference for the 1 in 100. Your help means the world to me and I’m grateful for anything you could potentially offer. Even just $1 can make a difference.
