Sara Hanzlik's Fundraising Page

Learn a Little

Talk about amazing - almost 31 years after my open-heart surgery and 8 years after I stopped going to Children's for check ups, I am so looking forward my 6th year of fundraising for the cardiovascular program at Children's! It is the best way to give back to this organization that has done so much for me, and our support means Children's and the Heart Clinic can continue to do amazing things for many others!

If you're new to my fundraising efforts, I was diagnosed with an atrial septal defect and a ventricular septal defect in 1987. At five months old, I had open heart surgery to repair them and I remained a patient at Children's well into my adult life; frequenting Children's for check up's and tests. I was issued a clean bill of health in 2010, shortly before the retirement of my life-long pediatric cardiologist, Dr. Amarjit Singh. 

It's easy for me to sum up my experience in a few short sentences, but ultimately it's because of Children's that that part of my story is so short, and the rest of my story continues on. I am so thankful to be able to add to it each day, much of that I attribute to my friends over at Children's!
