In May 2012 Sophia Capo was born.  She was a special and amazing little girl, with a broken heart.  Due to delayed detection, Sophie passed away 15 days later.  We now share her story with others in the hopes of saving lives and increasing early detection.  We work with families affected by CHD's and benefit those that support them.  Help us bring attention to one of the most common birth defects that kills more kids every year than all childhood cancers combined.  What if it was someone you loved?

Our Mission

In Your Shoes - The Sophia Capo Memorial Foundation's mission is to raise awareness for Congenital Heart Defects, to educate parents about early detection and intervention and to support families affected by these defects.


“Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.”
