Autumn Reo of Arlington wants to raise awareness of Congenital Heart Defect Awareness Week this week to help kids like her son Jackson. Valentine’s Day means so much to me and my loved ones. For one, I met my husband many years ago the same week as Valentine’s Day so in some ways it is an anniversary. Several years later this holiday would become another special anniversary for our family – as Feb. 7 – 14 is Congenital Heart Defect Awareness Week. And until 2008 I didn’t even know what a congenital heart defect was (CHD) until I was pregnant with our son, Jackson.
