Remie Mae was born January 25, 2017. Two weeks later, during a check-up, we were informed she had a heart murmur. On Febuary 15 they told us our sweet girl had a heart defect that would require open heart surgery to repair. My heart sank as this reality set in -something was very wrong with my daughter’s heart. At the same time, I felt inexplicable peace, peace that only God gives. I’ve experiences a number of breakdown moments preparing for what I feel will be one of the most difficult times of my life.
Remie Mae will have heart surgery on October 4th, 2017. We would appreciate your prayers throughout this time. If you feel moved to donate, we could use some help with expenses, hence this campaign.

Lastly, we’ve met and learned about some wonderful families who are also dealing with CHD. We want to raise awareness for Congenital Heart Defects (CHD). If your interested in spreading the word, check out this design: teespring.com/remiemae. When they ask, let people know twice as many babies die each year from CHD then all childhood cancers combined -yet pediatric cancer research gets about five times the amount of CHD. So, 10% of these profits will go to the American Heart Association.
