I'm including a video done by an amazing young woman that I have had the priviledge of meeting. Jessi just turned 21 and she has HRHS ~ the right side of her heart didn't develop like it should have. She has had several surgeries, and has a heart full of love and compassion for her fellow CHDers. Jethro is in this video. It's long, but those shown in the video are just a miniscule fraction of the number of CHDers out there.
If you ever give money to the American Heart Association, would you consider earmarking it for the Zachary Brooks CHD Endowment? 100% of all monies donated to the Endowment go toward CHD research. The AHA also has the Legacy of Life Endowment , which provides funding for CHD research (thanks, Lisa!).
If it were your child ~ how would you feel?
