|Hayden's Heart Fundraiser / Lyndhurst|
|Members of the Northeast Remnant will be helping support a very special cause. |
Hayden's Heart INC is a non-profit foundation created to honor Hayden Dorsett. Hayden was born with a rare heart defect called HLHS - Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome -which occurs in 1 out of every 10,000 births. Hayden was born and cared for at CHOP (Childrens Hospital of Philadelphia) and was projected to undergo three open-heart surgeries to fix his heart. Hayden fought hard through his first and second surgeries, but through his surgical process also suffered from a brain injury. Through it all he was the smiliest, happiest baby we have ever known and truly loved life- even with all of his obstacles. On August 16, 2012 at only 5 months and 4 days old, Hayden unexpectedly lost his life and joined countless other heart babies who have also lost their fight against CHD.
Our mission with Haydens Heart is to raise CHD awareness and to keep Hayden's Memory alive by helping families affected by CHD.On Saturday, March 18th, 2016 Haydens Heart INC is hosting its 5th Annual Haydens Heart 5K Run/Walk at Riverside County Park-(South) in North Arlington, NJ. Proceeds from the event will benefit sisters Aylin and Isabella Conil of North Bergen, New Jersey. Aylin is 4 years old with Tetrology of Fallot, enlarged pulmonary valve, tracheostomy with life support and G-tube for nutrition. She has had 2 corrective heart operations. She is a super happy, loving and friendly little girl. Isabella is 7 months old. She was also born with Tetrology of Fallot. She had corrective heart surgery at 4 months of age. Isabella is happy and always smiling.The day/event also falls around Hayden's birthday, so it doubles as a birthday tribute as well with lost of food, music, and plenty of kids activities. Last year we had over 800 people in attendance.Thank you for considering us.
