New Horizons Response Services is a proud supporter of Congenital Heart Defects. Congenital Heart Defects (CHDs) are conditions that are present at birth and can affect the structure of a baby's heart and the way it works. Isabel (Izzy), granddaughter of Mike and Jean Popa, was diagnosed with a Congenital Heart Defect called Tetralogy of Fallot when she was a day old. She had her life saving surgery at Mott Children's Hospital when she was 6 months old. She is now a healthy 7 year old! Izzy will have to have her pulmonary valve replaced as an adult. We hope, with the help of funding and research, that she will have it done in a catheterization laboratory and not have to have another open heart surgery. In order to help raise funds and support this cause that is so important to us, New Horizons Response Services will proudly donate $5 for every person who attends our classes.

Will you join us?
The Congenital Heart Walk is a national fundraising event series benefitting the Adult Congenital Heart Association (ACHA) and The Children’s Heart Foundation (CHF). We walk to honor and remember the millions who have been impacted by congenital heart disease (CHD).
The Congenital Heart Walk shows the nation how a team of inspired individuals can join together to make a difference. Funds raised will support the missions of both national nonprofit organizations who are uniting to fight CHD! Since 2010, CHW has raised more than $10 million in total.
