We raise awareness. We educate. We benefit heart families and bereaved families and those that support them. All because of a little girl named Sophie, who had a pretty special heart.
Congenital Heart Defects occur in about 1 out of every 100 births. Sophie was born with a broken heart and now we are touching lives to honor hers. More children die each year from CHD's than all forms of childhood cancer combined yet CHD's receive far less funding and attention. As parents of such a special little girl, we had to share her story and her life. Part of how we got here was the experience that we had during Sophie's stay on Earth. Family, friends and total strangers reached out to us to let us know we weren't alone. Having a child with such an extreme health condition can take its toll on families not only emotionally but financially as well. We received help in our darkest hours and for that we are forever grateful. Now it is time for us to help families in need. From parking expenses, meals, medical bills and God forbid burial expenses, we have been ... "In Your Shoes". We will never get to be Sophie's parents in the traditional sense but we can be her parents by sharing her story and bringing attention to CHD's in the hopes of saving lives and touching others, but we cannot achieve our goals alone. Find out how you can help.
