Friends and family,
We are thrilled to celebrate Asah turning one on September 15th. I remember our darkest days when we were unsure if we would ever get to this day-- and here we are! Our heart warrior has beaten the odds and never ceases to amaze us, day in and day out. In an effort to give back to an organization that means so much to our family, we request a donation to Mighty Oakes Heart Foundation in lieu of a gift. You can make your donation online or bring a check/cash to his birthday party.
The Mighty Oakes Heart Foundation is dedicated to providing financial support to families coping with the traumatic reality of congenital heart defects, the most common birth defects in the United States. They believe that LOVE is part of the treatment. LOVE is what gets you through the hard times. LOVE is part of the everday miracles and the big, unexplainable, life changing miracles.
Mighty Oakes Heart Foundation wants to take away stress, help parents clear their minds and focus on what REALLY is important-- thier baby. They understand that despite having a critically ill child, your bills don't stop and life continues to go on. MOHF provided Asah and our family with much needed love and now we want to provide other families with some love-- in honor of our heart warrior, Asah.
This past spring, our family was awarded a grant that allowed our family to safely transport Asah, ensuring we could successfully get him to each of his appointments. Having a child with a heart defect on a ventilator means you need to take extra measures to ensure their safety during traveling and the foundation made that possible for our family. Not only did they provide us with financial support, they welcomed us arms open into a family of heart parents that have showered us with love and emotional support during this terrifying journey.
You can help us assist another heart family in honor of Asah by giving a donation. We thank you in advance for your MIGHTY support!
