February is National Heart Month
Elise was born with a congenital heart defect called Primum Atrial Septal Defect. She had 2 holes in the bottom 2 chambers of her heart. At age 4 they learned the condition had gotten worse. April 2019 Elise had open heart surgery at MUSC to close the holes and fix her mitral valve. Her Scans at 6 months and 1 year are great! Elise was the 2020 Heart Hero for the AHA. The AHA gave Elise a platform to tell her story and meet kids and adults who were born with CHD. Elise is active in the Midlands Heart Walk and was a top 5 Walker in raising funds. She was the ONLY one to do it without the help of big donors. She has doubled her goal to $2000 for 2021. We are super proud of Elise and her giving heart. She does this to help “little hearts like me”
I was honored to design this earring to help Elise!!! A portion from each sale will be donated back to the AHA and help Elise meet her goal.
