Did you know that February 7 – 14 is Congenital Heart Defect Awareness Week? Ramblings From Life says, “Each year, an estimated 1 in 100 babies are born in the United States with a congenital heart defect; CHDs are the most common birth defect and the number one cause of death from birth defects during infancy. Nearly twice as many children die from congenital heart defects as from all childhood cancers combined, yet research for cancer receives five times the funding. This is due in large part to the lack of awareness most people have about congenital heart defects.” For more info, please stop by Ramblings From Life or the official CHD site.
