I have been trying to figure out how our family can make a difference. One heart buddy, Logan, and his family operate "Cuddles From the Heart" --- they make and collect blankets which they donate to CHD patients in the hospital. Logan's mom, Stef, is an awesome advocate for CHD Awareness, using her blog this week to present testimonies of heart moms and dads.
Anna Grace and her Mom and Dad (Tina and Brian) are going to be on a local news show this Thursday sharing about CHDs and how it has affected their life. How exciting! I already have it set to record! Tina has also established a Heart Moms' Night Out once a month in our area. What a blessing!
Another heart buddy, Derrick, and his family make BraveHeart Baskets to give to cardiac kids when they are in the hospital. As a matter of fact, Zach got one when he had his last surgery. It was like Christmas morning!

Saturday, Derrick threw a CHD Pancake Breakfast at Fatz in Columbia. This Saturday, he is throwing another pancake breakfast at the Fatz in Easley. He is one busy boy! The proceeds will help them make more BraveHeart Baskets. How awesome is that?!
How can our family make a difference for CHD Awareness week? I think our first step will be to get some tickets to that pancake breakfast and to eat some yummy pancakes!
