Hello. My name is Laurel Newson and I was born with a congenital heart defect (CHD) called Tetralogy of Fallot.
Being born with a heart defect can really take its toll on a baby's family (of course we don't remember). You are away from your home and like my mom, you don't have anything with you but hope.
Mended Little Hearts was a source of support for my mother as I endured two open heart surgeries and two procedures during my first ten months of life. Mended Little Hearts continues to be a beacon of support in the heart community and intend on beginning my support this year and continuing throughout my adult years.
I am using this platform to help raise money for families who's children were born with heart defects/heart disease. Please help me by donating in any amount instead of birthday gifts this year. It is a tremendous sacrafice for a kid my age but I just feel the need to serve the community that has helped my mom and me so much.
Thank you in advance for your donation and your support.
In closing, one in one-hundred ten humans are born with a CHD. Please help this organization support the biggest killer of children.
