Being born with a congenital heart defect you could say this event is close to my repaired heart. It is because of medical technology that I ride in this event to save little hearts born with the same disease that I was born with. Because of that I peddle harder and hope to raise more money to find more advances in technology and hopefully a cure so that there are no children born with a heart defects. Please join me and so many others as we help raise money to raise the spirits of the patients by supporting innovative cardiac research and care at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP). It is a big workout to help little hearts! With your support myself and a team of riders will pedal to raise money for congenital heart disease. From the bottom of my heart I thank you, Hope XOXOX
Little hearts need us: Parents shouldn’t have to hear the words “your child has congenital heart disease.” Yet, more than one million babies are born each year with congenital heart disease.
Together, we’ll create a breakthrough for every child: “I can’t think of anything more important than taking a child who has a fatal heart disease and getting them through to live to be a grandparent,” says Matthew Gillespie, MD, Interventional Cardiologist at CHOP. “We have in recent years made incredible, important breakthroughs that nobody else has had in some of the most important issues affecting our patients. We really need the support of philanthropy to make that possible.”
