Shannon was born with a bad heart. She went through a lot to live as long as she did, but it wasn't very long.
I only know I had a sister because of pictures. My sister died before I was born. She was only a baby.
There are lots of babies and kids who need life saving open heart surgery, surgery that has been developed, in part, with grants from the Heart and Stroke Foundation. Sure, the surgery was originally meant for adults, but kids have bad hearts, too.
The Heart and Stroke Foundation saves lives. It's why I'm participating in Jump Rope for Heart at my school.
Pleast help me reach my fundraising goal so that we can all live healthier lives.
