Did you know that 1 out of every 100 children is born with a
Congenital Heart Defect?
For the 29 days of February, my friend Kim’s blog
will be updated every day (matter fact, I copied this whole post from Kim’s blog)
, each with a focus on creating awareness for this overlooked, but very important health crisis. The blog will feature facts about this sometimes deadly defect, stories of inspiration and courage, and ideas for ways that you can help to spread the word about CHD and the need for public attention, government action and research funding. Throughout the month links will be added to support groups, research, facts and other useful information.
On each of the 7 days of the official CHD Awareness week (Feb. 7-14th, 2008), lists of seven items relating to CHD will be provided. Let’s see how creative it can get! Feel free to send in your ideas for lists of 7.
Send ideas, get inspired and most importantly – SPREAD THE WORD ABOUT CHD!!
