If you read my post Miracle #1, then you know why CHD Awareness is so important to me.
What is a Congenital Heart Defect?
- Congenital heart defects (CHDs) are problems with the heart’s structure that are present at birth.
- Common examples include holes in the inside walls of the heart and narrowed or leaky valves. In more severe forms of CHDs, blood vessels or heart chambers may be missing, poorly formed, and/or in the wrong place.
During CHD Awareness week, I’ll be posting facts about CHD, how you can get involved, and some info about the many organizations out there already helping!
