Heart moms...that's what we call ourselves. We are a group of moms who have a child with a heart condition.
Congenital heart disease, CHD, is the #1 birth defect in the world. Each year over 40,000 babies are born with congenital heart disease in the United States.
As the kids grow up, they face many challenges that healthy children will never have to face, and are physically unable to do many of the same activities. We are not about to let our children and others not have opportunities to live a full life.
Heart Camp is a wonderful place in California that has medical staff on-site and lets our heart kids JUST BE KIDS. It's a place where no one is staring at their scars, their oxygen, or feeding tubes.
As heart moms, we've banned together to make sure that all kids that want to attend camp get the opportunity. Our goal is to raise enough for 150 kids to attend camp and the extra we raise will be donated to the Heart Camp for their staff and supplies.
With your help, we can make sure that happens!
