We sadly lost our sweet daughter and Kaycee's twin sister, Karli, after her 17 day fight against truncus arteriosus. Although she was a tiny at 3lb 11oz, she was strong; a brave heart warrior. Please join us in remembering and celebrating her life and the life of all children and adults lost to congenital heart disease by participating in the Remember Our Hearts Virtual Charity Race. The event begins on October 18 and finishes on October 25, the National CHD Day of Remembrance. This virtual event is a meaningful way to honor Heart Angels, such as Karli, and raise much needed awareness about the impact of CHD on families. While our Heart Angels may no longer be with us physically, they carry on the fight against CHD with all of us.
Proceeds from the race will go towards Mended Little Hearts programs that raise awareness of the impact of CHD and support families and patients affected by CHDs. Karli recived a bravery bag from MLH after her first surgery and our family received an angel box from them after she passed. MLH has also donated items, such as ride along cars, for the children in CHOP's cardiac unit. For more information on Mended Little Hearts, please visit their website http://mendedhearts.org/
