Olivia was born with multiple heart defects which she will have to face and deal with the rest of her life. Nearly twice as many children die from Congenital Heart Defects in the United States each year as from all forms of childhood cancers combined, yet funding for pediatric cancer research is five times higher than funding for Congenital Heart Defects. I want to ask that at least 10 of my friends share each day the fact that I post about CHD on your wall or Blog. Awareness brings Research. Research brings Hope. Hope brings life.
