In its second year, “Brooklyn’s Helping Hands” raised $915 to assist local families affected by congenital heart defects, educate on CHD, and further aid in research. Brooklyn is no stranger to CHDs. She was diagnosed with a rare form of CHD called Shone’s Complex just days after her birth. Heart defects are among the most common birth defects and are the leading cause of birth defect related deaths. Brooklyn’s journey with the disease has created something positive for her and her family, a passion for helping and educating others.
