BENEFITING: Children's Cardiomyopathy Foundation, Inc.
EVENT DATE: Oct 10, 2015
In September and October, families across the U.S. will unite to raise awareness of pediatric cardiomyopathy, a chronic and potentially life threatening heart disease that is the leading cause for heart transplants and sudden cardiac arrest in the young.
My daughter was diagnosed almost 3 years ago with Restrictive Cardiomyopathy. Right now, there is no cure and no real treatment, other than a heart transplant. BUT there are good things coming that are in research phases both here and abroad. Help us fight to fund the research! Cardiomyopathy affects 1 in every 100,000 kids with only 3% of that being her specific type! Help us to raise money and awareness to fight for the kids around the world, the are our true Heart Warriors!
It takes a team to defeat cardiomyopathy, and we need you on our team!
