When Dusty Rose's mom, Monique, was only 19 weeks pregnant, the doctors discovered Dusty Rose's congenital heart defect during a routine ultrasound. She had Tetralogy of Fallot. When she was born, the nurses had to resuscitate her and rush her to the neonatal intensive care unit due to extreme difficulty breathing. After a month of tests and monitoring, Dusty Rose was admitted to CHOC for her first heart catheter procedure. Though they hoped this would extend the amount of time necessary to perform open-heart surgery, Dusty Rose fought through her first full heart repair at only two months old. Christmas 2019 marked the second open-heart surgery for Dusty Rose, but throughout it all, never once lost her smile. She is the bravest girl, and this year, she'll be leading her team as the captain of Dusty's Roses. I am so excited to be participating in CHOC Walk's 30th anniversary event - CHOC Adventure in the Park presented by the Disneyland(R) Resort to raise funds for CHOC! Even as the pandemic continues to linger, and has changed our world, one thing remains unchanged: children still count on CHOC to help them get better. Which is why this year's event will be reimagined so we can once again join together as a community. Please help me exceed my fundraising goal for the benefit of the children and families of Southern California by: -DONATING NOW by clicking the "Donate" button above or -JOINING ME at this year's event - SAVE THE DATE - Saturday, August 27, 2022 - for the CHOC Adventure in the Park presented by the Disneyland(R) Resort. Every dollar counts for kids! Many Thanks, Monique
