I am thrilled to let you all know that I am proudly involved with a non-profit organization called Wyatt's Warmth from the heart. We have a page on Facebook, as well as a twitter: @wyattswarmth and now a blog is set up. A lovely woman named Lisa got this started and Jillian and I among others are heavily involved in the donations collection and soon the distribution. Our mission is to collect donations of baby leg warmers, blankets, books, and stuffed animals, or funds to purchase these items, and to distribute them to other babies in the hospital going through treatment for serious conditions, many of white are Congenital Heart Defect patients. All of this is done in memory to honor Wyatt James Greeno, who passed away from Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome on January 24, 2011 at a mere 6 months old. He never got a fair shot at a full life, and hopefully we can raise enough awareness of CHD's to make the research of such conditions more of a focus than they are currently. 1 in 100 babies are born with a CHD, myself included. I got a shot at a full life, and while Im only in my 30s, if I were to die today, I gave it my all. Many of these kids don't make it beyond a few days or months to even know what impact they could have had on this world, but Wyatt made quite an impact on the few he met, and the many he never got to meet. And on his behalf, we want to spread the world and the love to other babies and families that they're not alone and we're all there for support!
