CHD AWARENESS MONTH

February is National Congenital Heart Defect month! 

Did you know 1 in 125 children (about 35,000 in the US alone) will be diagnosed with a CHD this year? 

There are more than 2 dozen identified defects.

Some children can live their entire life and not even know they have a defect. Others might only get to take a precious few breaths.

A simple pulse ox screening done after birth can greatly improve detection, treatment, and survival.

Please help me keep my family safe from blog stalkers and psychos by not using our last name or discussing where we live/work. Thanks!
