CHD is Congenital Heart Disease. Here’s a great website that explains it.

I’ve talked about Kristine Brite before. She’s the one that drew my attention to CHD. It’s the #1 killer of babies.
Anyone can have a baby with a heart defect. You may not know you have a heart defect until adulthood. But, Kristine lost her sweet baby Cora at only 5 days old.
There are several easy tests that can be done shortly after birth to detect CHD. The easiest being a simply pulse-ox test between 24-48 hours. Simple, non-invasive, and saves lives!

Read Cora’s Story. You will learn so much! And spread the word about CHD!
