February is ‘Heart Month’ and I wanted to take this opportunity to thank the Heart & Stroke foundation and all those who have donated toward the research that may have given me one more day, one more milestone to celebrate with my niece, Rachel. My 5 year old niece Rachel has Tricuspid Atresia which basically means she is missing the Tricuspid Valve in her heart that helps blood from the heart get to the lungs. Her condition is very severe, and causes her to turn blue, lose her breath, and get very tired with the smallest amount of exertion. Watch Rachel in action and see for yourself how she pushes.
