Welcome to Team Alyssa! We hope you can join us for the 6th Annual Conquering CHD Walk on May 20th! Please note the new location in Glen Ellyn, which is much closer for most of us!
When you decide to donate to Pediatric Congenital Heart Association (PCHA) in Alyssa's honor, you should know that you are supporting a true HERO! Alyssa was born with a heart defect called Atrioventrical Septal Defect (AVSD) and surivived open heart surgery at 13 months old on October 9th, 2015. Although she recovered extremely well from surgery and the doctors are thrilled with her progress, Alyssa has not been cured. There is no cure for CHD, but surgery was madatory in her case! It was an extremely stressful experience for everyone that loves Alyssa, but she surpassed all expectations and has grown stronger than ever. On February 23rd, 2018, Alyssa's will have her next follow up visit with her cardiologist, please pray for another quick and easy apointment filled with good news!
PCHA (conqueringchd.org) is an organization that has not only welcomed us, but supports us, as we navigate our way through providing the best care for our precious Alyssa. We have gained lifelong friends with familes that have been through similar situations as we have. They have instilled a passion in us to spread awareness about congetial heart defects. As a trusted non-profit organization, they spend every donated dollar on spreading awareness and supporting families in need of suuport, when in the hospital with a child or not.
Thank you for joining Team Alyssa and supporting PCHA!
-Shannon and Nick D'Addezio
