Heart Awareness Week

Just a few interest new tidbits that I was able to find via one of the other Heart Mom's blogs

  • Only about 30% of the children who need a heart transplant receive one in time.

  • About 40,000 units of blood are used every day yet only about 5% of the adults, the only ones who are eligible to donate blood, do so. Someone needs blood every three seconds in the United States; that someone is often one of our heart children.
Education is the first step in helping these children live happier, healthier lives
