My cousin Jennifer, who is just a few months older than me, has an amazing life story. Here’s a quote from her new blog “Running From My Heart“:
To celebrate my 40th birthday in April and the fact that I’m actually able to celebrate my 40th birthday in spite of having had three open-heart surgeries to correct Tetralogy of Fallot with Pulmonary Stenosis, I’m running a 5K the week-end of my birthday. I wanted a way to share that journey and possibly encourage others. Hopefully other Adults with Congenital Heart Defects or parents with children with Heart Defects will see this as encouragement that a diagnosis of a Congenital Heart Defect is not the end of the road but just the beginning.
I’d like to invite my readers to share in her journey and help cheer her on. May you be as encouraged by her as I have always been.
