I'm riding for kids and families like mine!
My daughter Raegan was born with 2 congenital heart defects, an ASD (Atrial Septal Defect) and a VSD (Ventricular Septal Defect). She was diagnosed as "Failure to Thrive" meaning if she didn't have the issues corrected, she would not survive. So, at 11-weeks old, she underwent a nearly 6-hour open heart surgery and spent 5 days in the PICU recovering.
By the grace of God, she is happy and healthy today and has a sweet scar and story to tell when she is older!
Raegan went in for surgery right before Halloween and was wearing a Wonder Woman costume going into the hospital. She is our warrior and our Wonder Woman who had the courage to fight for her life before she even knew what it meant to do so.
That is why I am riding in the Courage Classic, so other kids like Raegan can have the same successful outcomes and go on to live full and complete lives!
