Two different events are going to be happening in Columbia, South Carolina soon – one to raise money for Congenital Heart Defect (CHD) research; and the other one an informational meeting for parents of children with a Congenital Heart Defect!
On February 6, 2010, A group of CHD parents and friends will serve breakfast at the Fatz Cafe on Broad River Road in Columbia, SC. Give them $7 and they’ll serve you pancakes, sausage, fruit, and a drink; and the money raised goes to Heart Defect research at the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC). A good meal, a worthy cause, and a fair price – what else could you want?
Later that day Palmetto Hearts, a Congenital Heart Defect (CHD) support group based in South Carolina, will sponsor a CHD Parent Conference at The Inn at USC from 1:00 PM to 5:00 PM. One of the speakers will be Kim Russell, a fellow Adult Congenital Heart Association (ACHA) member from Atlanta. You’ll also get to meet and speak with several Congenital Cardiac experts from MUSC!
As much as I would like to, I’m not going to be able to be at either event – I have a previous family commitment. I know Funky Heart! readers enjoy “looking over my shoulder” when I liveblog a CHD event, but I can’t make it to this one, so you’ll have to come yourself!
Besides, do you want to read on you computer how much I am enjoying the pancakes? Probably not – you need to get down there yourself!!!
