Do you use Facebook?
I do. On my Facebook page, I just changed my status to read
Steve is a Congenital Heart Defect Survivor! Celebrate CHD Week with me, Feb. 8-14, 2009.
And I plan to leave it like that until February 15.
If you have a Congenital Heart Defect, I ask you to change your status to read the same as mine. Or insert “The Father of …” or “The Mother of…”, as appropriate. And let Facebook users see that we lead normal lives.
If you just know someone with a Heart Defect, you’re invited, too! Change your status to show that you are a friend of a Congenital Heart Defect Survivor!
Being a true friend can be difficult when the other person has a chronic illness. You stand with us, so celebrate with us!
