I have been participating in the Jump Rope For Heart campaign at school. My donation page is http://jumphoopsgsa.kintera.org/bensbrokenheart
As we have learned about why we need to take care of our hearts, I developed a passion to support Jump Rope For Heart.
We have been taught that it is important to stay active and exercise so that our heart muscle is strong. We have also been taught that we have to eat healthy and stay away from the junk food. (Mom already tries to do that with me.)
For those that follow my blog, you know that I am a Congenital Heart Defect Warrior. At one week of age I had Coaractation of the Aorta repaired and since then have been monitored for a Bicuspid Aortic Valve with Stenosis. I am doing well as long as I exercise and eat healthy. I have met other children that have similar CHDs and they have had to have more surgeries or are weak and sick.
I am blessed, so that means I need to advocate for others.
We have to turn in our Sponsor Form Friday morning (February 7th) and I know I am late getting this out, but I also know that you care about those fighting heart disease and those born with heart defects.
Thank you in advance!
