My husband and I, after years of praying for a miracle, were blessed with the adoption of our beautiful daughter, Gianna. She immediately became the light in our lives and every day we are reminded how lucky we are. At 6 months old Gianna was diagnosed with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. She is a spunky soul, full of personality, touching the lives of everyone she meets, our greatest blessing. On April 23 we will be hosting a fun evening with friends, bringing awareness to the disease.
Pediatric cardiomyopathy is one of the most serious heart conditions affecting children and the leading cause for heart transplants and sudden cardiac arrest in the young. Approxinmately 30,000 children in the US are diagnosed with some form of cardiomyopathy.
This fundraiser benefits Children's Cardiomyopathy Foundation, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization whose mission is to "accelerate the search for a cure by stimulating and supporting promising research on pediatric cardiomyopathy, by educating and assisting physicians and patients on the complexities of the disease, and by increasing awareness and advocacy on behalf of affected children and their families."
We hope you can join us at this fun event, all for an awesome foundation!
Thanks for your continued support and love!
Jim, Mandy, and Gianna Knight
