According to The Children's Heart Foundation,"CHDs are responsible for 1/3 of all birth defect-related deaths and sadly 20 percent of children who make it through birth will not survive past their first birthday. Although a child is born every 15 minutes with a CHD, research continues to be grossly under-funded in America."  We can't change statistics, but we can help grow funding!

Our son, Dale Perryman Sholl, was born with a handful of complex congenial heart defects. He has a form of HLHS where his ventricles didn't form right and they are reversed.   So far he has had the DKS Sano,  then recently had his Glenn procedure  and in another year he will have the Fontan.  He is doing SO well right now, finally learned to walk and now there's no stopping him.  AND he seems to have adopted his father's passion for NASCAR!  Since he was named after Dale Earnhart Sr. :o)

Jack was born on January 11, 2012 with a Congenital Heart Defect called Hypo-plastic Left Heart Syndrome. We were told that he would undergo 3 surgeries, one of which would take place within the first few weeks of his life. By the grace of our awesome God, Jack didn't have to have the first surgery. We left the hospital after only 6 days in the NICU. He has been thriving since we brought him home. Right now, his doctors think his first surgery, the Glenn procedure, will take place in June.
This is Madison Savannah, born with HLHS.  She's 11 years old & you'd NEVER know she's been through 3 open heart surgeries unless you were told.  We found out about her condition when we had to rush her back to the ER less than 24 hrs after being discharged from the maternity ward, she came within 2-4 hours of losing her life & it was the scariest day of mine. She had her first operation at 10 days old, her chest was left open for 7 days & closed on Mother's Day, 2000.  She's only been hospitali People, Savannah Chat, Maternity, Mothers D, Maddie
