3rd Annual Pure Hearts Fundraiser
Dear Family and Friends,
We are thrilled to be hosting our 3rd Annual Pure Hearts Fundraiser! With the success of our first two fundraisers, we are confident that with your help we can raise $15,000 this year, 100% of which will benefit pediatric cardiology research at Boston Children's Hospital!
Four years ago, during a routine pregnancy ultrasound to find out the sex of our baby, we were handed a piece of paper that would change our lives forever. It had atrioventricular (AV) canal defect written on it. We did not even understand what those words meant, let alone know what lay ahead of us. Our beautiful daughter, Kaia Faye, was born on September 30, 2011, absolutely perfect, with a very special little heart. She was diagnosed with a complete AV canal defect and a mildly smaller, but thankfully functioning, left ventricle. Kaia underwent an open-heart surgery on December 16, 2011 at almost three months old. Thanks to the wonderful care she has received at Boston Children’s Hospital, Kaia has beaten all odds and has had her second surgery to further repair her mitral valve postponed once again.
We are hosting a fundraiser, because we want to help Boston Children’s continue its amazing work for kids. The research conducted at Boston Children's Hospital changes children's lives every day and we are honored to be able to contribute to the great work they do.
Please consider donating to our cause! Every dollar makes a difference!
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts! We are so grateful for your love and support! Without you none of this would be possible! <3
