A Good Cause from the AHA

This story touched me. As you might know I'm a member of the American Heart Association and teach CPR at local hospitals. The Amercian Heart Association and its donations have helped so many children.

CREATE HOPE for millions of Americans like Caroline!
When our daughter, Caroline, was born on February 9, 2006, we were so excited to welcome her to our lives. Our excitement was quickly overwhelmed with fear when we learned that Caroline was born with a hole in her heart. At five days old she had surgery to repair that hole in her heart.

The surgery was a great success and by mid-April, Caroline was home and healthy. She is now a strong and determined little girl. Hope is a reality for us and it wouldn't have been possible without the life-saving research advances funded by the American Heart Association.
Living through the experience of our newborn child's heart condition discovery, surgery and recovery showed us that we are truly blessed. Her experience creates hope for thousands of other parents of children born with congenital heart defects.

Please take a few minutes today to join us in creating hope for others by joining the American Heart Association's Million Dollar Day campaign and pledging your support! Our contributions will create hope for others in the research discoveries we fund.
Mark, Shari and Caroline Busby
