Honoring Joshua

On May 18, Shane and I (and the kids too!) will be participating in a Congenital Heart Defect walk in Indianapolis.

We will be helping to raise funds to support the Children's Heart Foundation as well as the Adult Congential Heart Association- both of which support, advocate for, and help fund research for Congenital Heart Defects.

Did you know that 1 in 100 babies are born with some form of a Congenital Heart Defect? Funding is essential to helping find cures and treatments for CHD.

Joshua was born with Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome. Essentially he was born with the left side of his heart "missing." He had 1 open heart surgery at 3 days old and another when he was 5 weeks old.

3 days old

He passed away on Oct. 6, 2010 at 51 days old.

The last time I ever saw my baby.

Would you like to join our team and help raise funds to help children like Joshua? We are looking for both sponsors and walkers. Our team goal is to raise $1000.

If you would like to donate or sign up for a team, please follow THIS link. You can search for me by name: Jill Haskins or by our team name: Team Joshie.

Even if you can donate just a few dollars, your help will go to saving lives!

Please join us in remembering our sweet boy who changed our lives forever.
