CHD’s are a leading cause of birth defect-associated infant illness and death. Infant deaths due to CHD often occur before the baby is 28 days old.

“Sometimes this is the face of Congenital Heart Disease (CHD). Grief. Sorrow. Gut wrenching sadness. A face that can only be understood by a parent who has held the weight of their deceased child in their arms. A perfect 7lbs 15oz.” Unfortunately, Addy Hope’s story did not go the way that Jacques and Emily, along with their doctors, had planned. But the Rancourt family clings to HOPE, for they know that He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death' or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things will pass away. (Revelation 21:4) And there will be a day where they can be reunited with their Addy Hope in Heaven.

Even with improved treatments, many people with a CHD are not cured, even if their heart defect has been repaired. People with a CHD can develop other health problems over time, depending on their specific heart defect, the number of heart defects they have, and the severity of their heart defect. For example, some other health problems that might develop include irregular heart beat (arrhythmias), increased risk of infection in the heart muscle (infective endocarditis), or weakness in the heart (cardiomyopathy).

So thankful to Save Our Legacy for all they do to showcase our heart families ❤️

Meet Thaddeus, his story is an example of a true hero living life with hope and the ultimate courage, taking in each day as a gift as he battles with congenital heart disease. With COVID 19, it's even more difficult for families to be together as their loveones go through treatments, surgeries and hospital stays.

Eight weeks ago when Jacques and I offered to have a videographer follow us through Thadd’s third open heart surgery journey, we had no idea that two open heart surgeries later Thadd would still be in the hospital fighting for his life.

The @wholeheartedfoundation was born in the Cardiac Intensive Care Unit waiting room of Children’s National Hospital in Washington DC on 6/14/2014. Jacques and I were clinging to a pager that was updating us on Lily while she was in the OR receiving her Hero’s heart. A woman walked out of the unit and collapsed near us onto the floor. Jacques ran over to her and so did another man holding a small {twin} baby. Later we would learn that this man’s name was Ryan and his son Caleb had coded earlier in the day and was in the CICU in a tenuous place. Both Jacques and Ryan helped the woman into a chair, and they asked her if there was something they could pray about. The woman said that her healthy 4 year old son came down with a virus that was attacking his heart and he was being put on ECMO (life support) right that very moment.

The previous Wholehearted Luncheons have always featured a heart family or two to give people a glimpse into life with congenital heart disease. This year, we decided to let you all into a tender time in our lives. We thought this would be a great opportunity to have a look behind the doors of the CICU and see how Covid-19 has added extra hardship on heart families.

This year’s luncheon will be live-streamed on October 22nd at 12pm and 7pm. Grab your lunch {or dinner} and join us virtually for a day in our lives as a heart family ♥️

While it saddens us greatly to not be able to be together in person, due to the high risk population we serve and the essential care workers that we invite, we thought it would be best to hold this event virtually. Even though you may not be able to see these families physically, their needs are still there and greater than ever. Wholehearted Foundation is so grateful for your continued support and we couldn’t help these families without you!

❤️

The COVID-19 crisis has significantly impacted many of the families that we serve. The hospital has implemented very strict policies- only 1 parent is allowed at a time with each heart warrior, visitors are not allowed, and some of the hospital eating areas are operating in a limited capacity. Our Wholehearted family referrals continue to pour in from the hospital social workers and we are seeing more and more families with additional hardship as a result of the virus. It is truly a joy and blessing to be able to help meet these needs as they come over to us (financial, spiritual, emotional, etc.)
