❤ We’re already in heart month, but Feb 7-14 is CHD Awareness week. ❤
Before Holden’s diagnosis, the only thing I knew about heart defects is that some babies may have a hole that closes over time, and that some people have a murmur (which I didn’t fully understand the extent of what that even meant). It’s surprising that so many babies are born with CHD, yet it’s not a widely known birth defect.
During CHD Awareness week, or really any time through the month of February I urge you to post facts about CHD so that others can be aware.
Another step further, paint a rock with a fact about CHD and hide it within your community. Paint the hashtag, #HoldenRocks, and let’s see how many people find it. If you do paint a rock, feel free to share a photo with us!
