CHD video

A fabulous mom of a heart baby, named Ashley Meyers, recently created a video of CHD (Congenital heart defects) warriors and angels. Kaia is one of the babies in the video. I want to share this with you all, not just to show you that Kaia made a video, but to tug on your heartstrings a little and help with CHD awareness. Did you know that two times as many kids in the US alone dine from CHD than all childhood cancers combined? It's the #1 cause of birth defect related deaths. This year, 4,000 heart babies won't live to see their first birthday. Kaia was one of those babies. She appears in the video at 8:24 into it, but I think that changes as kids get added all the time. Please spread the word and let's all work to help get funding for this epidemic! It gets VERY LITTLE, and therefore, there is little known about it or what causes it or how to prevent it. I embedded the video below, but I don't know how to make it so it fits the space. So, if you'd rather, please go HERE.
